Experience the Adventure of Johnstone Strait Kayaking
Imagine being next to a glistening glacial stream, surrounded by the serene beauty of Robson Bight. This is the enchanting setting where Orca Camp awaits you, providing the ideal launching point into the majestic Johnstone Strait. Prepare yourself for a kayaking adventure like no other, as you immerse yourself in the realm of orcas.
Discover the Wildlife: Orcas and Humpback Whales
Nestled near the Michael Biggs Robson Bight Ecological Reserve, home to the renowned Orca Rubbing Beaches, Orca Camp is perfectly situated to give you an extraordinary chance to encounter these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. Witness firsthand the magic of these wild beings as they play, socialize, and nurture their intricate culture.
In recent years, the resurgence of Humpback Whales in Johnstone Strait has been remarkable, and our kayak trips have often been graced by their presence. While we cannot guarantee sightings due to their wild nature, the opportunity to see these incredible creatures in this area is among the best the world can offer.
Indulge in Coastal Cuisine
At Orca Camp, we believe that delightful and nourishing food is an essential part of any wilderness adventure. That’s why we have enlisted a local gourmet chef to design our menu and train our guides to become excellent wilderness cooks. Each day, you will savor fresh, mouthwatering meals that will leave you sated and ready for the day’s new adventures. Our coastal cuisine features local delicacies such as salmon and organically grown vegetables, ensuring a culinary experience that complements your journey.
Unwind in Safari Tents and Cozy Bedding
Your comfort is our utmost priority. We strive to strike a balance between preserving the serenity of the wilderness and ensuring your utmost enjoyment. After a full day of kayaking and exploring, we want you to feel invigorated and well-rested.

Our experienced guides adapt the daily kayaking trips to suit the skill level and experience of the group, enhancing your overall sea kayaking adventure. Let our guides share their vast knowledge of Robson Bight and the surrounding area, adding depth and insight to your exploration.
Get Ready for an Encounter with Whales
Every day at Orca Camp holds the possibility of kayaking alongside orcas. Johnstone Strait’s waters are deemed a critical habitat for both resident (fish-eating) and transient (mammal-eating) Orca pods. During the summer months, all Northern Resident pods gather in the strait, feasting on the bountiful salmon migration. As you relax on our beach, you may even witness these incredible creatures feeding near the kelp.
