Here on the Central Coast, home of the Kermode (Spirit) Bear, the region resonates with chirps of Bald Eagles and other birds.

This is an incredibly ecologically diverse region, and as a result, throughout the Milbanke Sound and the Discovery Passage, you’ll most likely see seals, sea lions, orcas and humpback whales.  So grab your camera because even though you might be trying to spot bears, whale watching is always on the agenda.

This is North America’s premier rainforest destination and is truly a special and spiritual place. Therefore, it’s no wonder that Heiltsuk people settled here all those years ago and still call this home today. You will meet and talk to many Heiltsuk people while you visit Shearwater Resort & Marina.  We happily employ our neighbours from Bella Bella who have helped define what Shearwater is today.

"WE HAVE IMMENSELY ENJOYED OUR GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST CRUISE. NEVER A DULL MOMENT WITH JAW DROPPING SIGHTINGS OF HUMPBACK WHALES, ORCA'S, BEARS AND EAGLES."

B. Repin, Award Winning Vancouver Builder

"I HAVE BEEN VISITING SHEARWATER FOR MANY YEARS...THIS IS MY 27TH. I HAVE ENJOYED AT SEVERAL FISHING LODGES ALONG THE COAST OVER THE YEARS BUT HAVE YET TO DISCOVER ONE THAT BEATS SHEARWATER. FISH SPECIES ARE PLENTIFUL... EAGLES, WILDLIFE, ORCA AND HUMPBACK WHALES ARE ALL THERE TO ENJOY. STAFF AND SERVICE ARE SECOND TO NONE. A MUST DO FOR AT LEAST ONCE IN A LIFETIME."
