Home to abundant wildlife, sparkling clear waterways, mountain scenery and ancient forests, our traditional territories encompass Northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia and adjoining mainland and islands around Johnstone Strait and Queen Charlotte Strait.
Sea Wolf Adventures guides your journey to ancient places in a manner that honours the values of First Nations people who live here. Sea Wolf Adventures, based out of Port McNeill, connects travellers to destinations in the Broughton Archipelago and surrounding areas for personal travel, charters, freight and local First Nations cultural tours.
Our vessel is located at the fuel dock North Island Marina (Map).
