Our area supports an amazing amount of wildlife both in the ocean and on land. Milbanke Sound and the discovery Passage support enormous numbers of Orcas (killer whales) and Humpback Whales - so whale watching is a favorite activity. We are on the doorstep of the Great Bear Rainforest - the home of the Kermode or Spirit Bear (White Phase Black Bear) and the area resonates with the sounds of Bald Eagles and other waterfowl.
Our visitors all agree that our area is truly a special spiritual place. It is no wonder that First Nations peoples settled here at the beginning of time. And they still make this their home today. Many of the people from Bella Bella work at our vacation resort and have helped make Shearwater what it is today.
Whatever your outdoor wilderness adventure goal is, Shearwater’s sheltered waters and pristine location ensure that you will have the trip of a lifetime! Be sure to contact us today to discuss the endless possibilities.
