10 Reasons Our Vancouver Island Kayaking Holiday Is Right For You

  1. Orca Camp’s unrivalled location (I): adjacent to the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve – the traditional feeding and breeding grounds for Orca whales
  2. Orca Camp’s unrivalled location (II): more than 400m (1,000ft) of pristine, private beachfront – on the edge of a temperate coastal rainforest. There is no better camp location anywhere on the Johnstone Strait for immediate and unfettered access to Orcas
  3. Experience. We are the originals. We’ve been making memories for over 30 years, offering guided sea kayaking tours since 1976.
  4. Quality. We could tell you all about it, but our clients say it best – check our testimonials to read what our clients have to say.
  5. Value. We offer unexpected “value-ads” including a private, motorized whale-watching excursion in addition to kayaking with Orcas – at no additional cost to you. Wilderness adventures should be shared by the entire family - to make family travel affordable we offer special pricing for children over the age of eight.
  6. Support. As a registered travel agency and experts in Western Canada and Alaska, we are happy to arrange the perfect journey for you.
  7. Commitment. To the Orcas. To our environment. To you!
