Canada's Johnstone Strait: Kayak with orcas and bald eagles - home to the world's only orca preserve Robson Bight (where orcas come to rub their bellies on certain beaches and feast on summer salmon runs). BEST place in North America to paddle with orcas - as 250 northern resident orcas (strictly fish-eating) congregate here each mid-July to mid-Sept to feast on the salmon funneled into the strait. This unique subspecies is found nowhere else in the world!
We guarantee orcas mid-July through mid-Sept - or we will send you on a 1/2 day orca cruise!
