3/10 North Vancouver Island, Canada

The stretch of sea between western Queen Charlotte Strait and the northern Strait of Georgia off the north of Vancouver Island is one of the most reliable places to see killer whales (orcas) and humpback whales. Thanks to the work of The North Island Marine Mammal Stewardship Association (NIMMSA), about 25 local whale-watching operators adhere to a code of conduct for responsible whale-watching. NIMMSA member Kingfisher Wilderness Adventures runs a four-day ‘Family Kayak with Whales‘ trip (designed for children aged six to 14) to see orcas and humpbacks as well as harbour seals, sea lions, and porpoises from its Family Orca Waters Base Camp near the Johnstone Strait. The trip costs from £607 per person.
