Welcome to beautiful Campbell River located on British Columbia’s Vancouver Island.

Campbell River is famously known as the ‘salmon capital of the world’ and for good reason, but here at 50North Adventures we know it is more than just fishing grounds! Its a place where you feel as one with the raw and natural beauty that nature has to offer. A feeling of being local as you expore and relax in this special part of the world! 

50North Adventures provides your access into one of the world’s most diverse outdoor adventure playgrounds and the home to Humpback whales and Orca.

Come and explore this natural enviroment and its untamed wildlife in the protected in-land waters of British Columbia.




Whale watching & Wild Life

Steeped in both Canadian and Indigenous history, right on our doorstep, Campbell River is home to Orca and humpback wales, pacific white sided dolphins, seals, sea lions, otters, 5 species of wild salmon, bald eaglesblack bears, brown bears, snow capped mountains and more.

All of this is located in and around the famous waters off Discovery Passage and the Sailish Sea, previously the Straight of Georgia. Campbell River leads you into the beautiful Discovery Islands and Desolation Sound.

In 2017 we had 52 recorded visiting Humpback whales and the endangered “J pod” Orca intereacting with the Northern resident orca at our doorstep throught out the summer.

Truly a photographer’s paradise!
