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. The night will spent a one of the lovely anchorages in the area.
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 at Lyle Island where the agreement between the Haida Nation and the Government of Canada was signed to stop the industrialization of the area and preserve the area forever in a National Park. We are guided 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.
Day 3: Another fine breakfast and Bill’s famous coffee. Hotspring Island’s three naturally formed hot water pools await our eager bodies. 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 see the place as the early European travelers saw.
The night will be spent in another one of the beautiful bays in the area.
Day 4: We drop off at another Haida Heritage Site on Tanu Island known for its house pits and fallen poles. This Village is my favourite I think because of the very real feeling of calmness I get whenever I visit. We then traavel through Louise Narrows on the west side of Louise Island and back to Moresby Camp. The tour concludes with a special celebration dinner and farewell to new friends.
