Whether you are here in summer, winter, autumn or spring there is always a host of activities for you to get stuck into. Head out in search of Black Bears from a covered vessel with a viewing deck or zodiac between May & October or head out for some whale-watching, where you might also see seals, sea lions and sea otters whilst a variety of seabirds swoop around you. The birding here is spectacular with lots of resident Bald Eagles as well as Tufted Puffins, Black Oystercatchers, geese and ducks across different habitats throughout the year. There is also some serious fishing, relaxing hot springs, surfing and sea kayaking alongside lots of opportunities for nature walks and hikes and beaches to explore. During the winter, the storm watching is fascinating as 20 foot waves pound the shores and howling gales haunt the skies and there is plenty of indoor fun to take advantage of, from the climbing gym to the Wickaninnish Interpretive Centre.
