Welcome to Johnstone Strait, BC!

Extending for 110 km (68 mi) from its easternmost point at Rock Bay Marine Provincial Park west to Telegraph Cove, the glacier-carved Johnstone Strait separates the northern part of Vancouver Island from the British Columbia mainland and is an important navigation channel, as well as being a summer feeding ground for pods of resident killer whales (orcas). Places of interest along the channel include the boardwalk community of Telegraph Cove and the small, coastal communities of Sayward and Kelsey Bay, each offering access to marine-based adventures, unique expeditions and specialty sightseeing and interpretive guide tours.

Home to the Kwakwaka'wakw First Nations for thousands of years, the majestic and tranquil passage is also a prime destination for those seeking authentic and intimate encounters with distinctive local culture and awe-inspiring natural surroundings and wildlife, including whale, seal, bear and bird watching opportunities. Aboriginal perspectives, all-inclusive wilderness expeditions, salmon fishing excursions and sea kayaking adventures are hallmarks of a visit to the region, replete with one-of-a-kind experiences to satisfy nature and wildlife enthusiasts alike.
