Sea Kayaking Johnstone Strait - Kayak with Orcas and Humpback Whales
Out of all the kayak tours we offer, Johnstone Strait is by far our most popular sea kayaking destination. The Johnstone Strait and surrounding waters are the most reliable location in the world to kayak and see whales, with orcas (killer whales) and humpback whales being the main species viewed on our kayak tours. Our 4 day Orca Waters Base Camp and 6 day Orca Waters Explorer kayak tours have about a 95% success rate of seeing whales over the past 12 years.
