Only 15 minutes from Port McNeill lies the Broughton Archipelago, BC's largest marine park.

It is a realm of bald eagles, jumping salmon, harbour seals, sea lions and bears, but best of all, Orcas and minke and humpback whales.

Whale Species

Whale-watching in these waters is a contender for best in the world. Northern resident Orcas, minkes and humpback whales return each year. In summer 200 whales ply Southern Queen Charlotte Sound and Johnstone Strait.

Orca Whales

The Orca or killer whale is king, roughly 9m/30ft long, powerful, graceful, majestic, awe-inspiring. Resident Orcas are fish-eaters, transient Orcas carnivorous and with a taste for seals. Whales travel in pods, each pod with its own language. Listen in on a hydrophone, an underwater microphone.
