Telegraph Cove is at the northern end of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, in the south west corner of Canada. It is extremely accessible by both Vancouver and Victoria when you rent condos in Canada.

The cosy, wooded village has an incredibly scarce human population, but the orca population in the area is another thing entirely.

Stubbs Island whale watching

Stubbs Island whale watching in Telegraph Coves is the best place to go to visit the massive population of orcas (killer whales) that call this area home. While the human population of Telegraph Cove bounces between 10 and 20, the orca population is more like 200!

Stubbs Island whale watching is one of Canada’s premier whale watching tours travelling to Johnstone Strait where the orcas live between June and September. Stubbs Island whale watching boasts a 90% sighting rate, which is practically unheard of! In addition to the orcas, you might see grey whales, different species of dolphins, humpback whales, sea lions and many migratory birds.

This eco-system is nothing short of spectacular. Rent condos in Canada and embark on the exciting whale watching tours in Canada.

Cape Churchill polar bears

Cape Churchill in Manitoba, Canada is on the Hudson Bay and known as the ‘Polar Bear Capital’ of the world. Getting there might take a little effort, but seeing the polar bears in their natural habitat is more than thrilling, it is an opportunity of a lifetime!

The easiest way to Cape Churchill is to charter a flight from Winnipeg. Polar bears are usually quite difficult to view in the wild, but the Cape Churchill polar bears come to the Hudson before it freezes over for some much needed hunting before they disappear onto the frozen tundra of Hudson Bay.

It is also a delight to see the cubs here frolicking. The fact is if you have seen polar bear photography or documentaries, chances are they come from Cape Churchill. In order to see the Cape Churchill polar bears, rough and tumble tundra buggies will be your transportation. Some reputable companies include Frontiers North Tundra Buggy Tours and Tundra Buddy Adventure.

Knight Inlet grizzly tours

Grizzly bears are synonymous with Canada and Knight Inlet in British Columbia has one of the highest grizzly bear populations in the country. Grizzly bear tours in Knight Inlet can be enjoyed spring through autumn.

In the spring you can watch from boats and viewing platforms as the bears yawn away their winter’s hibernation and begin to birth a new generation of grizzly cubs.

Grizzly bears are also out and about during the summer months, but if you want the best grizzly bear tours in Knight Inlet come during autumn. Autumn is so special because the salmon begin running up the channels to spawn.

Millions of salmon saturate the Glendale River jockeying for position fighting to get upstream. This brings the bears out en masse in Glendale Cove and Knight Inlet and is known as one of the best wildlife displays in the world. Rent condos in Canada to visit the mighty Grizzly bears.
