Kingfisher Wilderness Adventures and the MERS have teamed up to bring you to the heart of Johnstone Strait off the northeastern corner of Vancouver Island. This area is recognized as one of the most predictable places in the world to see humpback whales and killer whales (orcas) in their natural habitat.
This fundraising trip brings you to Kingfisher’s Hanson Island base camp. The camp is where Weynton Passage connects Johnstone and Queen Charlotte Straits – a humpback whale hot spot. From the comfort of the base camp we explore the variety of kayaking routes the area has to offer. Humpback whales regularly feed in the waters surrounding the camp. Not only do we hope to see whales while kayaking, but we often see them right from camp while enjoying the morning’s first cup of French-pressed organic coffee or a dinner of locally caught salmon around the campfire.
