Yes it is! We are a bit biased but for good reasons! :)
Campbell River is a wonderful destination for enjoying the wildlife on sea and on land. It’s also quite close to go whale watching if you come from Vancouver. Only 1h 45mn drive on a safe and easy highway.
Campbell River is close to Johnstone Strait, home to the largest resident pod of killer whales. The whales are stunning, the scenery unbelievable, and the marine life is quite impressive. Robson Bight offers the best chance for viewing, thanks to a wide variety to marine life. Also visible are harbour porpoises, harbour seals, Steller’s sea lions, Dall’s porpoises, grey whales, humpback whales, sea lions, and bald eagles.
