With easy access to the world’s largest concentration of Orcas(Killer Whales), our adventure begins with a scenic 1 hour drive aboard our luxury passenger bus to the Port of Kelsey Bay. Ideally located in the middle of world famous Johnstone Strait, Kelsey Bay is the perfect place to begin our search for all this amazing place has to offer! The bus also allows us to avoid what is often a very rough boat trip through the waters above Campbell River and in to Johnstone Strait!
The quality of sightings and variety of wildlife is unique to our area. Enjoy watching Killer Whales feeding, breaching, hunting, beach rubbing or playing with each other! You also have the opportunity to see Humpback Whales, Pacific White-Sided Dolphins, Porpoise, Black Bears, Stellar Sea Lions, Pacific Harbour Seals and the beautiful Bald Eagle!
Listen to the magical sounds of the Killer Whale with our onboard Hydrophone - an unforgettable experience!!
Take in the stunning scenery as we navigate the calm waters off Northeastern Vancouver Island.
At Discovery Marine Safaris, we are committed to sharing our knowledge and passion with everyone that visits this remarkable place that we call home. Our onboard Marine Naturalists are some of the best on the coast, continuously interacting with our guests and interpreting all that this diverse ecosystem has to behold. They also provide a spectacular presentation that is sure to inspire and move you! Our Captains have all spent most of their lives sailing the waters off BC's coast. You won't find more experienced, entertaining, or engaging mariners anywhere else!!
Don’t forget this is Canada! Even on a hot summer day it can be cool on the water. The cozy, enclosed, heated cabins of our new, state of the art boats ensure that you are always comfortable! Our boats also feature multiple viewing decks and WASHROOMS!!! As well, our boats, Captains, and Marine Naturalists are all Ship Safety Certified by Transport Canada.
