Scott Islands: Truly Wild

  

Overview

Far flung adventure. Just offshore, at the northernmost tip of Vancouver Island, are the Five Scott islands. Currently under review to be designated a National Marine Reserve, the Scott Islands are home to an awe-inspiring abundance of bird life. More than two million seabirds make their home here, due in large part to the equally impressive abundance of sea life. The Scott Islands provide some of the most unique scenery on the coast.  For those who venture out to the islands, amongst the best bird watching in all of Canada awaits.
