Having the use of the boat means we are able to access a much larger area than we can by kayak. This means we can spend more time with whales and other wildlife. With a boat we can spend hours with them if we choose. Also, orcas, could be spending their time in Blackfish Sound, Weynton Pass, or on the Vancouver Island side or further away. Having a boat means we can expand our whale watching to all areas, not just the radius near our camp. It is also common that while kayaking the viewing of the orcas can be very distant. The late August time period is a very good time to be in the area as the quality and quantity of sighting can be very good.
