Abundant Wildlife

Map of Juan de Fuca wildlife areaThe Strait of Juan de Fuca are the waters adjacent to Victoria British Columbia. Wildlife is abundant and our guides can share their knowledge of this area.

Ocean currents have to squeeze into the “funnel” as the land masses on either side narrow. There is also an upwelling effect bringing nutrient rich water from the Continental Shelf, that hasn’t seen the light of day in up to 10,000 years. This is where the food chain begins. All marine animals and wildlife take advantage of it.

Local sport fish species include salmon, halibut, rockfish, snapper and lingcod.
