HerbieDFWildlife & Scenery Around Dundas Island

The Dundas Island group lies between the waters of Dixon Entrance East and Chatham Sound and overwhelms you with some of the most breathtaking scenery on the Pacific Coast. From its calm protected coves, inlets and bays stretch massive kelp beds which extend to the ocean pounded rocks and beautiful white sand beaches, Dundas Island is rich in scenery and wildlife alike. The waters around Dundas Island are home to countless other mammal life.

It is not uncommon to watch pods of Orcas (Killer Whales) swim within yards of your boat while majestic bald eagles soar in the skies above.  The Dundas Island group is also on the direct migratory path of feeding Humpback Whales.  It is a common experience to see these magnificent creatures breaching and bubble feeding as they make their journey south. Other local residents include porpoises, seals, sea lions, otters, a unique strain of swimming coastal wolves, and a vast array of bird life; so don’t forget your camera.
