Whale watching with Orca Dreams

We are your hosts
JD and Kelly. We will be at our camp this summer spending time with extraordinary wildlife and wonderful people.

Join us. We promise you an unforgettable whale watching experience.

The tours

Join us for a whale watching holiday of a lifetime. From May 1 through late October we offer four-day whale watching and sea kayaking tours around Vancouver Island’s inner north coast.

We watched humpbacks lunge feed, breach and slap their tails – and that was just from camp. We also caught a beautiful fish, enough to feed our whole group. Unforgettable!

Life at camp

The Orca Dreams camp, located on a small island off northen Vancouver Island, was designed with comfort in mind while still offering a wilderness experience. Each day we'll watch the abundant wildlife that surrounds us. We'll also take time to relax at camp, hike the trails or fish for dinner.
