You won’t run out of things to do whilst staying at Shearwater, with the wildlife sightings being top of the list. The Great Bear Rainforest is home to Black, Grizzly and Kermode bears, and sightings are common in the late Summer months. Bears aren’t the only wildlife to be found around the resort; other regular sightings include wolves, deer, mink, mountain goat, bald eagles and sea otters; so keep those eyes peeled!

Due to the Coastal location, Shearwater also provides guests a unique chance of sighting 3 different species of whale (The Orca, Humpback and Grey Whales) and even White-Sided dolphins! Whilst watching for whales, why not take a dip in Eucott Hot Spring, located in a beautiful bay just off the Dean Channel , surrounded by coastal mountains.
