Paddling with whales Posted by: WestCoastPaddler on Dec-10-12 12:59 AM (EST)
While you may see orcas at any time in and around Johnstone Strait the very best time to see them there is from the end of July and through August and September.
This past summer I spent 3 months in the Broughton Archipelago and sighted lots of humpbacks, several orcas, a few grey whales, and a very impressive number of dolphins. While I didn't personally see it myself, there was a pod of 1000-1200 dolphins reported near the entrance to Johnstone Strait.
I can't adequately express with words how exciting it is to be paddling near these amazing creatures.
