God’s Pocket Expedition – $1600 per person

At the north end of Vancouver Island’s main highway lies the fishing town of Port Hardy. Outside of the bay there is a group of islands that few people ever see other than the odd fisherman. This area is known as God’s pocket. Orcas and humpback whales are common summer residents. One large island is home to a large coastal gray wolf population.

Jaques Cousteau has called this area “the best cold water diving on earth” due to converging currents which make for an extremely abundant marine zone. The wildest and most remote of our trips, this is for those who want to see the wild coast at it’s most removed from the “civilized” world.

From there we take two days to base camp and explore the area at our leisure by kayak.

On the last day we are picked up and go for another 3 hour tour before being shuttled back to Campbell river. Grizzly bears are a common sight along the mainland coast and orcas as well as humpback whales frequent the passages among the islands. The Zodiac enables us to guarantee seeing these creatures, as well as experience the calm serenity of the sheltered islands. Perfect for families.
