Sealions on Vancouver Island

Sealions are a common sight along the Eastern Vancouver Island shoreline. Anywhere there are places for them to pull out of the water, they will congregate, especially during their migration months in the fall and spring.

On the central island, one of the best places for sealion viewing is at the Fanny Bay government dock. The sealions like to gather on the pontoons just off the docks, and attract a lot of attention when they are in town!

They make so much noise they can be heard from anywhere near the water. It is undeniably entertaining to watch these giants, in fact it can be hard to leave!

To hear these very noisy creatures, check out our You Tube video:

Port Alice

Port Alice is one of those wonderful towns on Vancouver Island that people hear about but don't necessarily know where it is. A little town tucked into a protected inlet on the north-west coast of Vancouver Island, Port Alice has long been a favourite for fishermen and outdoor recreation enthusiasts. With good paved road access and all amenities, Port Alice is an ideal base for further exploration of the region.
