If you consider yourself a wildlife and nature enthusiast, Orca Dreams, Canada's first whale watching camp, should be very high on your list of places to go in B.C.
Luxury, safari-style, beachfront camping on a private island in one of the richest ecosystems in the world, Orca Dreams offers an authentic, life-changing West Coast experience.
Orca Dreams is a paradise that I couldn't have dreamt up myself. As I first approached the remote island from our old Naval Vessel, I felt a lump in my throat. A white pebble beach, lined with gorgeous canvas tents came into view, alongside a hand built driftwood kitchen. Sea lions basked nearby on the rocks, and a bear cub was searching for crabs on the adjacent island. I felt a sense of belonging like I never had before.
Orca Dreams Whale Watching Camp is located on a remote island off the north inner coast of Vancouver Island, in the Broughton Archipelago. The is one of the most biodiverse places in the world, famous for its large concentrations of orcas (both transient and residency) as well as the humpback feeding frenzies once they return from Hawaii.
