Like a Local: Visiting Port McNeill, BC

Sitting near the top of northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia is the unassuming town of Port McNeill. This is the starting point of our Orca and Humpback expedition tours. During these tours, you spend 4-to-6 days kayaking in the infamous Johnstone Strait in search of majestic whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and sea lions. If you’re lucky, you might have me as your guide!

Orca Kayak Tour: 4- or 6-day Trip?

Kayaking with orcas in Johnstone Strait allows for once-in-a-lifetime orca encounters every week from early July through mid-September (depending on salmon runs).
