What to Expect

The Salish Sea is home to one of the richest varieties of marine life on the planet. There's no better place to view the charismatic orcas of the salmon-eating J, K, and L Pods, and sightings of awe-inspiring transient, or Bigg's, killer whales are at an all-time high. In addition to orcas, humpback whales, minke whales, and gray whales are also frequently seen throughout the year.
