The incredible landscape of the Inside Passage is home to diverse wildlife – orca, mountain goats, bald eagles, bears, puffins, sea otters and more – but the superstars of the area are the gentle giants who feed here every summer. Look out for the awesome acrobatics of breaching humpback whales. You'll never forget the sight of these 40-ton beasts hurling themselves into the air, almost completely escaping the water. If you're especially lucky, you could see them swimming together to create a bubble net, trapping and eating fish by the giant mouthful.
