Shearwater Resort and Marina is the Gateway to the Great Bear Rainforest where wildlife is abundant in this vast area of temperate rainforest. Bald eagles, Sitka deer and bears—grizzlies, black bears and the rare white Spirit Bear—are all found here. Spend days watching Humpback Whales, Orcas, steller Sea lions, Dall’s porpoises and harbour seals and enjoy the sounds and sights in one of the most untamed areas of British Columbia.
Whale watching of Orca's (or Killer Whales), Humpback Whales, and Grey Whales is made available all season long because of our special area on the Central West Coast of BC. We even get to see Pacific White-sided Dolphins due to our close proximity to the open ocean.
In addition to whale watching there are natural Hot Springs with endless vistas of the Coastal Mountain Range to enjoy, Black, Grizzly and Kermode (Spirit) bear viewing is also a popular attraction in the late summer when enthusiasts view these incredible mammals feasting on the spawning salmon.
