This marine wildlife wilderness area is one of breath-taking natural beauty with rugged coastlines, pristine forests and unspoiled ocean. Hundreds of islands provide inlets, coves and bays ideal for sailing, boating, whale watching, wildlife viewing, kayaking and photography. Considered by many to be the top group of islands in the world for marine eco-adventuring, the Broughton Archipelago is a wilderness masterpiece.
The inlet and the waters of Johnstone Strait are known for their abundance of mainland and marine wildlife. The region is home to a northern population of resident killer whales (Orcas), and other marine mammals including dolphins, harbour porpoise, porpoise, seals, and wintering sea lions. Other wildlife in the area includes deer, bears, shorebirds, seabirds, loons, and bald eagles. Vast numbers of salmon migrate through these waters providing excellent salmon fishing.
