During the months of March to May witness first-hand the incredible 15,000km (9500 mile) annual northern migration of approximately 20,000 gray whales. These whales feed in the food rich waters and protected bays of Clayoquot Sound on their way to the Bering Sea from the lagoons of Baja Mexico.

From June to November, view the ‘resident gray whales’ plus a whole host of other mammals that visit our coast, including transient Orcas (Killer Whales), Humpback Whales, a variety of Porpoises, Stellar and California Sea Lions and Harbor Seals. If you are fortunate enough you may also spy a Sea Otter, which are making a comeback from virtual extinction.
