What Will You See

We are fortunate to have a huge variety of wildlife right at our doorstep in Campbell River and the surrounding Discovery Islands! We have a large population of Humpbacks Whales that migrate here each summer, along with Orca (both Transient and Resident), and even the odd gray whale! We do more than just whale watching though! We also commonly see Pacific White Sided Dolphins, Seals, Sea Lions, Black Bears, Grizzly Bears and Bald Eagles! We have great sightings year round but the summer months are typically the best time for Whale Watching in Campbell River. 

We’re fortunate enough to be a part of a fantastic Whale Watching community, which means we often know where everything is before we even get out on the water. This increases our chances greatly of seeing humpbacks, whales, dolphins, and various other marine and wildlife
