Sightseers whale watching (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Sidney waters boast Vancouver Island's highest concentration of Orca (killer whale) sightings.
Calm Gulf Islands waters help. Sidney proves a safe and convenient base for whale watching. Bring cameras, binoculars and a sense of adventure.
The southern resident community of Orcas – three pods in Sidney's waters – spends most of its year in the Salish Sea and Puget Sound. But that's not all: Sightings of humpback, grey and minke whales are common, too.
Some lucky watchers sight transient whales, the carnivorous whales that travel in pods of up to five. Also known as "silent predators," they like nothing better than a lunch of seal.
