ON the Water

Are you ready for an extraordinary adventure amidst the vast, crystal-clear waters that abound with stunning marine life? If so, then welcome to our enchanting realms, where humpbacks, orcas, white-sided dolphins, and porpoises are a common sight. Not to mention, you’ll find playful sea lions and seals basking in the sun, while humongous crabs, prawns, and giant starfish lurk in the depths of our oceans.

But that’s not all -you won’t want to miss out on the ultimate salmon fishing experience that awaits you here. You can explore this wonderland from above on an exhilarating whale-watching tour, or by booking a kayak tour for a closer look. And for those of you seeking the ultimate thrill, we have some of the best cold water scuba diving in the world. Your adventurous spirit will be thrilled as you plunge into the depths of the ocean and get up-close with some of nature’s most fascinating creatures.
