British Columbia Marine Mammal Studies 

This expert-led expedition goes way beyond any ordinary whale watch tour. Kayak with humpbacks and orcas in their natural habitat. Then live and work at a remote biological field station.

Experience a close encounter of the marine mammal kind. On and around dramatic Vancouver Island, BC, witness the harbor seals, porpoises, dolphins, sea lions and whales that come here to play in a wondrous natural playground. Learn about these animals as you kayak through their tranquil home waters of the Johnstone Straight. Camp on the beach and hear their songs off in the distance. Hunt for knowledge alongside marine scientists, researchers and naturalist guides in stunning wilderness settings. Turn their ecosystems inside out and help make them better when you’re done. It’s challenging. It’s up close. It’s personal. It’s unlike anything else back home.
