Killer Whales come to this region to feed on the salmon that are returning to the Fraser River to spawn. The salmon start to migrate upriver in May and continue until October. There are three pods (families) of Killer Whales that consist of approximately 80 whales and return to this area every year. Throughout your tour, the naturalist will share insights into orca behavior, and help you spot a variety of creatures. You’ll have the opportunity to hear the whale calls of any orcas encountered along the way using on-board hydrophones. Handy photo id charts will help you identify different species of animals. The high-speed zodiacs used on for this whale watching tour offer both an open-air deck and a covered cabin, ensuring a comfortable tour no matter the conditions.
