Welcome to Stubbs Island Whale Watching!
British Columbia's first whale watching company was established in 1980. Orca (killer whales) and many other marine mammals frequent the Johnstone Strait area. Stubbs Island Whale Watching is locally owned and operated by Jim and Mary Borrowman. Telegraph Cove is located on the Northern end of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
The name Lukwa comes from the Kwakwala language and means 'a place in the forest.' The Lukwa (pictured above) was built from aluminum in 1989. This spacious vessel can comfortably accommodate up to 49 passengers.
Now entering its thirty-first season, Stubbs Island Whale Watching is British Columbia’s premier whale watching company. Its history reflects great dedication to education, research and conservation.
Year-round resident species include the Bald Eagle, Harlequin Duck, Great Blue Heron, Pigeon Guillemot, Rhinoceros Auklet, Red-necked Phalarope and Black Oystercatcher.
