Haida Gwaii June 30 - July 9, 2019 picture Join us on an exclusive expedition aboard a small sailing vessel. Meet Haida interpreters who share their artistic heritage, and be awed by the beauty of Haida Gwaii!

Signs of the ancient and living Haida culture remain throughout Haida Gwaii. Longhouses and totem poles tell a story of rich human history. We’ll visit these ancient sites, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Tour SGang Gwaay Linagaay. Haida interpreters will be our guides to this incredible cultural legacy.

We’ll travel creeks threading through old-growth forests and navigate the waterways between the communities of the islands. We’ll view incredible landscapes as we search for a rich array of wildlife.
