Amazing British Columbia Glamping Retreat for a Whale Watching Adventure
Visit Johnstone Strait with the most magical places to stay in British Columbia
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.

ENHANCED CLEANING & HYGIENE MANAGERS Sanitation and hygiene are always important in a group setting. In addition to our usual thorough hygiene measures, we have added additional precautions, further cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting of surfaces and equipment. We have scheduled tours to allow for deep and extensive cleaning between groups. Guests are issued a set of kayaking/camping gear to use for the duration of their journey. All gear used is also in a rotation system that after a thorough cleaning it is also left for multiple days before being used. On our glamping tours (Whales & Wilderness Glamping and Johnstone Strait Ultimate) we have also added a full-time dedicated camp hygiene manager who will be responsible for enhanced cleaning protocols. EXTENDED PERSONAL HYGIENE & SANITATION We have made even more opportunities for ensuring good hygiene practices, including the installation of additional sinks with touch-free faucets at our basecamps and foot pump handwashing set-ups for our expedition-style tours. Hand sanitizer is also available in various locations. All staff and guests will be reminded to hand wash at various times throughout the day. Our Whales & Wilderness Glamping camp now also has private composting toilets at each tent along with a private hand washing sink. MEAL PREPARATION & OUTDOOR DINING Our guides are FoodSafe certified and follow the recommended health and safety guidelines for food service. Our team will also be wearing masks and maintaining proper hand hygiene including when appropriate wearing gloves while handling, preparing and serving food. We will be serving plated meals rather than any buffet or self-serve – don’t worry you can always come back for more! MASKS & FACE COVERINGS We provide all guests with a buff to wear around their necks when on the water which is then easily pulled up if needed while on the water. While we don’t anticipate needing masks frequently, there will be times when they are required such as on the water taxi or if another occasion arises where physical distancing cannot be maintained. Of course please feel free to bring your preferred face covering(s) as well. We also encourage you to wear your mask in public spaces when traveling to and from your tour.

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.
