Port of Kelsey Bay

Located within Vancouver Island's Inside Passage, near the village of Sayward, The Port of Kelsey Bay awaits your arrival.  Orcas and sea lions are visible in the Johnstone Strait from the newly restored wharf which includes an inclement weather, glass enclosure viewing room.

Take a half-mile jaunt from the wharf, past the village, and you'll arrive at the mouth of the Salmon River. This estuary is home to migrating water fowl  at different times throughout the year and is a bird-watcher's paradise.
