Orca watching

Departing from : Telegraph Cove wharf

Take an unforgettable zodiac or boat excursion to watch the orcas ("killer whales") off the magnificent fishing village of Telegraph Cove.

Johnstone Strait is considered to be one of the best spots in the world to see killer whales.

Imagine a 2-metre long dorsal fin breaking the surface close to your boat, as an 8-ton mammal comes up to the surface to breathe... An amazing sight!

You may also get the chance to see humpback whales and a variety of other marine mammals and sea birds. 

It's a unique experience you will never forget!
