Bald Eagles in a tree
The Vancouver Island region’s diverse ecosystems make for some of the best wildlife viewing in British Columbia.
Popular wildlife activities on Vancouver Island include guided whale-watching and bear-watching tours, but there are many self-guided wildlife viewing opportunities as well.
Watch grizzly bears in Knight Inlet, view Roosevelt elk (found only on Vancouver Island), check out one of many bird watching areas or look for the Vancouver Island marmot, an incredibly rare mammal.
Enjoy seeing prolific marine life in Barkley Sound and Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, snorkel with salmon and seals, watch sea otters play in kelp beds or spot wildlife from the deck of a working coastal freighter as it plies the waters of remote West Coast inlets.
