Sea Kayaking Destinations

Haida Gwaii - Gwaii Haanas National Park and Haida Heritage Site

Sea kayaking in Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) is a spectacular experience. From remote wilderness travel, fantastic wildlife, and a rich First Nations heritage, this area encompasses it all. If you are looking for a true wilderness experience that has you traveling through a rich and diverse ecosystem along with rich Haida culture, then these are the trips for you!

Isolated from British Columbia by the infamous Hecate Strait, the Queen Charlotte Islands are ecologically unique. Called Haida Gwaii, or ‘Islands of the People”, these emerald isles are often referred to as the ‘Canadian Galapagos’. The 100 kilometres of open water has isolated the archipelago from the BC mainland, to the extent that there are at least 39 distinct subspecies of plants and animals that are found no place else in the world.

Haida Gwaii is home of the Haida Nation, and our trips travel their traditional waterways and visit traditional cultural sites, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ninstints, Hotspring Island, and the village of Tanu.

Our trips take place in the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site, voted as the #1 wilderness park destination in North America by National Geographic. Visitors to this area are limited, due the remoteness and a strict quota system implemented by Parks Canada.

We offer the following trips in Haida Gwaii:

The Great Bear Rainforest

In true expedition style, this expedition explores British Columbia's central coast between the small coastal villages of Klemtu and Bella Bella. Also called the ‘Great Bear Rainforest’, it is one of the few pristine temperate rainforests left in the world. This rugged and challenging coast offers diverse paddling routes, abundant wildlife and a rich First Nations culture.

This is our most challenging tour and thus we require participants to have prior kayaking experience. As these tours are more expeditionary in nature, we operate as a smaller group (six guests, two guides), paddle longer each day, and leave the itinerary flexible to deal with the dynamic environment we will be traveling in.

We offer the following trips in the Great Bear Rainforesti:
