Destination BC released a new video this week showing what it’s like to take a trip to Northern Vancouver Island from a traveller’s point of view.

Michele and Jan take a kayaking tour from Telegraph Cove on Vancouver Island to go whale-watching and wildlife viewing.

They find Orca and Humpback whales, sea lions, seals, dolphins, grizzly bears and eagles in the area around Johnstone Strait and the Broughton Archipelago.

The duo also visit First Nations sites and learn more about B.C.’s Aboriginal culture.

Northern Vancouver Island is home to an abundance of wildlife. One of the highest concentration of Orcas in the world roams the waters and grizzly bears feed on swimming salmon in the Great Bear Rainforest. Explore this rugged coastline on a sea kayaking expedition or venture out on a journey in search of bears with local First Nations guides. This is a remote place where nature thrives and Mother Nature still reigns

The video ends with these fitting words by Jan:

I am drawn in by the people here, I am drawn in by the landscape, by the wilderness, and I will be back.
