In BC, the sea otter population had all but vanished until 1969 and 1972 when government biologists released 89 otters into the waters of the West Coast of Vancouver Island. By 2008 the population had reached nearly 5,000. They are still listed as a species of “special concern,” have not yet re-established themselves on Haida Gwaii, inside Georgia Strait and along some stretches of the Central Coast.
Western Gulls are large white-headed birds with a heavy bill and pink legs. Breeding adults have a dark grey back, an orange ring around the eye and a red spot on the lower bill.

A long overdue Update everyone.
August 2017 was good & bad for Beachcomber Ocean Tours. We had 2 weeks of adventures & happy customers then on August 17th we had total engine failure, unfortunate for many of our customers who were looking forward to tours to see wildlife & the magical waters of Barkley Sound.
Going forward we are excited to be up and running again & the MV Blackfish has been re-powered with a Volvo Penta D6 330. This is state of the art in new diesel engine technology combining superior performance with reduced exhaust emissions, high reliability and increased fuel efficiency. Thank You to Advanced Marine Power, Campbell River for your excellent service.
We are Looking forward to 2018 please joins us on our next Adventure!
