Wildlife abounds, whether on land, in the ocean, or soaring overhead. Starfish Charters takes you to where you can watch whales, seals, and sea lions, and spot sleek playful sea or river otters.
Further ashore, you may encounter deer and bears, mink and marten, and perhaps even a wolf. The islands are also home to innumerable bird species that rely on the ocean environment, including peregrine falcons.
You can also explore the world between sea and land by examining the tidal pools that dot the beaches. If you're experienced and eager to be on your own, you or your group can arrange to be dropped off at a pre-arranged location and picked up later. Cape Scott Provincial Park, which is accessible by a 45-minute boat trip west of Port Hardy, is one of our most popular drop-off and pick-up points for campers and hikers.
