Whales & Wildlife Quadra Island

4 Days / 3 Nights Roundtrip Vancouver

Price from$1,084

This journey is the ultimate way to get a first-hand glimpse of magnificent BC wildlife in our gorgeous Pacific Playground. Experience the majesty of killer whales in their natural environment. Transient and resident pods as many as 120 whales each gather around Robson Bight and Telegraph Cove each summer, making Vancouver Island one of the world's hot spots for watching. These incredible mammals arrive each year to socialize and mate, giving lucky on-lookers a rare chance to see them in the unspoiled splendour of their natural habitat.

You'll also board a Hurrican Zodiac and zip along Discovery Passage to Vancouver Island's untouched wilderness. Guided by a trained naturalist, you'll travel along Discovery Island and see local BC wildlife thriving in their natural habitat. Watch for black bears, stellar sea lions, seals, whales and Pacific white-sided dolphins. You'll see bald eagles swoop from the treetops and majestic herons fishing in the tidal pools. Breathe the crisp, salty air as you dart around lush inlets and explore secluded Pacific islands by boat.
