Orca Whales

A delightful encounter with the northern resident orca whales in British Columbia, Canada.



It's an awe inspiring sight to see orca whales (aka Killer Whales). It is even more impressive to see their massive bodies surfing behind a boat, cutting through the water like a hot knife through butter - it seems they need very little effort to move.

It is possible to see the resident Orca Whales in their natural habitat along the coast of British Columbia in Canada. In fact this is one of the best places in the world to see them.

Resident Orca Whales live in matriarchal family groups called pods. Each year between June and September/October the northern resident pods forage and socialise in and around the waters of Johnstone Strait, and Queen Charlotte Strait.

Tours are available to see the northern resident Orca Whale pods from the coastal communities between Campbell River in the south to Port Hardy in the north.
