Kayaking with orcas

A glacier-carved channel between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia, Johnstone Strait cuts through a realm of giants – where towering red cedars grow to 1,000 years old and where bald eagles, black bears and orcas gain mythological stature in the minds and carvings of the local Kwagiulth people. Boat tours in fast zodiacs are available from various ports, but the most rewarding and intimate way to explore Johnstone Strait is by sea kayak. William Gray describes what it’s like to paddle into a maze of islands far from other tour boats, learning about wildlife and culture from expert guides and getting sea-level views of seals, sea lions and, with luck, orcas.
