Work Channel

Prince Rupert, B.C.

Work Channel is a unique site along the Whale Trail as it is one of the best places in British Columbia to observe humpback group bubble net feeding behaviour. Bubble net feeding is a foraging strategy where
humpback whales use teamwork and an impressive spiral of bubbles to corral a school of fish. In the summer and fall, humpbacks aggregate in this long, narrow and deep channel, continuously feeding, breaching and resting. These waters are also home to many other marine mammals. Look for the distinctive dorsal fin of killer whales or inconspicuous groups of harbour porpoise.
