Types of Whales in Nanaimo Yacht Club

Orcas:
The marine life at the Nanaimo Yacht Club (NYC Clubhouse) area includes Porpoises, Dolphins, Whales, Seals, and Sea Lions. East and south of Vancouver Island waterways are the home for hundreds of frolicking orca whales. The Resident Whales feed on abundant Salmon fish during the summer months.
