KAYAKING JOHNSTONE STRAIT AND THE BROUGHTON ARCHIPELAGO

Johnstone Strait and the Broughton Archipelago off the northeastern corner of Vancouver Island are world renowned for protected kayaking routes with some of the best wildlife viewing imaginable. Lonely Planet ranked kayaking Johnstone Strait to view whales as their #2 of 10 Amazing Canadian Adventures.

This area is recognized as one of the most predictable places in the world to see both both killer whales, also called orcas, and humpback whales. Kingfisher offers both base camp and expedition style kayak tours ranging from four to six days for the adventurous traveller. No previous kayaking experience is necessary.
