Alder Bay is steps away from some of the most biologically abundant waters on the coast. The Queen Charlotte Strait, Johnstone Strait (Robson Bight), and Blackfish Sound are home to some of the highest densities of marine mammals on earth.
This region is considered to be the best place on the pacific coast of North America to find Northern Resident Orcas. Humpback whales also call this area home during the summer and are a regular daily sighting. The odd Minke whale or Bigg’s (Transient) orca can also be an occasional treat. One never knows what is around the corner, perhaps a Bald Eagle fishing, a rowdy group of Stellar Sea Lions or maybe even a Black Bear combing the beach.
