Location : The Pearse Island group is situated at the north end of Johnston Strait between Cormorant Strait and Broughton Strait. Very close proximity to Robson Bight & the Broughton Archipelago Marine Park.
Access : Pearse Island is located just a couple minute boat ride from either Telegraph Cove or Alder Bay Resort near Port McNeil on the east side of Vancouver Island.
Recreation : World class salmon & halibut fishing, prawning, crabbing, kayaking & whale watching.
Area Data : Robson Bight

Robson Bight visited by up to 200 orcas each summer when the whales arrive to rub themselves on the gravel beaches at the mouth of the Tsitika River. As the ecological reserve is a sanctuary for killer whales, all motorized boats must refrain from entering the reserve. Whale watching occurs outside the sanctuary, conducted by whale watching companies based in Port McNeill, Telegraph Cove, Alert Bay, and Sointula.

Broughton Archipelago Marine Park

Broughton Archipelago is a wilderness area consisting of a maze of several small islands, numerous islets and adjacent foreshore at the southern extremity of Queen Charlotte Strait, off the west coast of Gilford Island. Located between Vancouver Island and the BC mainland, the islands in the marine park are undeveloped and are largely undiscovered. The numerous remote, solitary islands incorporated in the park provide unlimited and unique fishing and swimming opportunities.

Port McNeill

The town of Port McNeill is a thriving community on the northeastern coast of Vancouver Island. Established in 1937, Port McNeill was named after William McNeill, a Boston-born explorer for the Hudson's Bay Company.

As well as being the centre of North Island logging operations, the town's sheltered harbour is also a launching point for sportsfishing enthusiasts who test their skills in the maze of waterways between Vancouver Island and the mainland.

Telegraph Cove

Telegraph Cove is tucked away on the eastern coast of Northern Vancouver Island. In 1912, Telegraph Cove was a one-room station, the northern terminus of a telegraph line that began in Campbell River and stretched from tree to tree along Vancouver Island's east coast.

Next to the arts and crafts gallery stands the home of community pioneer Fred Wastell, whose father purchased most of the land around the cove. Together with Japanese investors, he established a chum salmon saltery and a small sawmill.

These days, the tiny town is a major destination during the summer months, when the snug little bay bustles with boaters, anglers, campers, kayakers and whale-watchers. With its colourful buildings and peaceful inlet setting, Telegraph Cove, one of the last boardwalk communities of eastern Vancouver Island, is worth a visit even if you're not planning to do any offshore exploring.

Johnstone Strait

Johnstone Strait is a 110 km (68 mi) channel along the north east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Opposite the Vancouver Island coast, running north to south, are Hanson Island, West Cracroft Island, the mainland British Columbia Coast, Hardwick Island, West Thurlow Island and East Thurlow Island. At that point, the strait meets Discovery Passage which connects to Georgia Strait.

The strait is between 2.5 km (1.6 mi) and 5 km (3.1 mi) wide. It is a major navigation channel on the west coast of North America. It is the preferred channel for vessels from the Georgia Strait leaving to the north of Vancouver Island through the Queen Charlotte Strait bound for Prince Rupert, Queen Charlotte Islands, Alaska, and the North Pacific Ocean, and for southbound vessels from those areas bound for the Port of Vancouver.

The Strait is home to approximately 150 orca whales during the summer months, which are often seen by kayakers and boaters packed with tourists. Scientists including Michael Bigg and Paul Spong have been researching the orcas in the Strait since 1970. Spong established the OrcaLab, based on studying the Orcas in their natural habitat without interfering with their lives or their habitat. The strait includes the Robson Bight (Michael Bigg) Ecological Reserve.

The Strait was named by Vancouver for James Johnstone, master of the armed tender Chatham. In 1792, his survey party established that Vancouver Island was an island.

There are no cities or towns along the length of the strait. Telegraph Cove and Robson Bight on Vancouver Island are along the strait near its north end and the village of Sayward on Kelsey Bay is near its midpoint.
