- 4 day tours departing Moresby Camp for Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site
Cost:$ 1,650 Cdn / person (5% Discount for Seniors)
Day 1: Set sail south from Moresby Camp on the tide. See amazing birds and stunning scenery in our 4 hour sail through Cumshewa Inlet. Drop anchor at Skedans, a venerated Haida Cultural Site. This village was a thriving community just over 100 years ago. This site is occupied by Haida Watchmen.
Enjoy lunch, exploration - then as the evening falls, paddle back to the boat, raise the anchor and move behind Limestone Island for the night.
Day 2: After a hearty breakfast, we will sail past many small islands and check out the impressive sea lion colonies that bask and frolic in this area.
We anchor off Windy Bay and visit the famous Lyle Island for lunch and a walk through an ancient rainforest where thousand year old spruce and sacred cedar are found.
People do not believe trees grow this big so bring your camera. Off again, we will spend the night near Hotspring Island, made famous in an article in National Geographic.
Day 3:Another fine breakfast and Bill’s famous coffee. Hotspring Island’s three naturally formed deep hot water pools await our eager bodies. Once used only by Haida royal families, you will never forget the breathtaking views of the ocean and forest from your steamy basin.
This Haida Heritage Site is also overseen by Watchman. Hours can be spent in awe studying the abundant tidal life and incredible rock formations.
Back on board, we sail north past scenery of such rare beauty there are very few places left on the planet like this. You will know what Captain Cook and the early European explorers saw.
The night will be spent in one of the beautiful bays in the area, depending how far we get.
Day 4:We drop off at another Haida Heritage Site on Tanu Island known for its totem poles and then through the Louise Narrows on the west side of Louise Island back to Moresby Camp. The tour concludes with a special celebration dinner and farewell to new friends.
