Killer Whales

Alert Bay is located within northern resident orca and Bigg’s killer whale critical habitat making this one of the best places in the world to these animals. In summer and fall northern resident orcas come here to feed, socialize, and rub their bodies on the smooth pebble beaches in the nearby Robson Bight (Michael Bigg) Ecological Reserve. Bigg’s killer whales can also regularly be found here.
