Amazing British Columbia Glamping Retreat for a Whale Watching Adventure

Tented cabin in West Cracroft Island, British Columbia

2 guests • 1 bedroom • 2 beds

This incredible British Columbia glamping site is the ultimate whale-watching adventure. While on vacation in BC, guests will be able to spend four days at a comfortable kayaking and killer whales base camp that may change their idea of being cozy and relaxed in the wilderness forever.

Activities include wildlife watching around the clock (orcas, humpback whales, black bears, cougars, shore and sea birds, minks, river otters, dolphins, porpoise, and a vibrant and colorful intertidal life), exploring the wild, vast, and rugged coast, visiting the beaches and rain forest of Western Canada, and kayaking excursions each day with professional guides that take care of glampers for the entire stay at our camp.

The British Columbia camping retreat could not be better positioned to give guests a great chance of encountering the majestic and elusive orca and humpback whale. Comfortable amenities include big tents on platforms, thick sleeping mats, pillows, and blankets, a wood-fired hot tub overlooking the ocean, an on-demand hot water shower, and a gourmet wilderness kitchen.

One of the other perks that come with the British Columbia glamping accommodation is a well-established kitchen for the fantastic guides to prepare guests' food. They use mostly organic fresh fruits and vegetables to prepare gourmet meals topped off with home baking. The hosts also provide 24-hour snacks just in case glampers get a hankering for something late at night.

This tour runs every 4 days from the end of June to mid-September.

This sensational retreat is the ultimate in British Columbia glamping getaways. The adventure begins the moment guests step off the docks onto a high-speed water taxi. Glampers can relax in comfort as the guides whisk them through the scenic waterways to the heart of the Johnstone Strait where the remote wilderness camp is located.

Guests will be situated directly across from Robson Bight, which is considered one of the best killer whale observation areas. In fact, the whale researchers in this area live at the other end of the bay.

Glamping in British Columbia here is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and the camp could not be better positioned to give guests a great chance possible of encountering the majestic and elusive orca and humpback whale. Nearly all of British Columbia’s 300 resident orcas return to the Johnstone Strait area for the summer season to play, eat, sleep, and rub their bodies underwater on the area’s unique, small pebble beaches.

In addition to orcas, this British Columbia camping retreat is fortunate to share the ecosystem with humpback whales, black bears (it is not uncommon to see black bears foraging along the shores for seafood during low tide), deer, cougars, shore and sea birds, minks, river otters, dolphins, and porpoise – to say nothing of the abundant, vibrant and colorful intertidal life one can see below the surface.
