Explore one of the most spectacular places on the planet aboard a 70' schooner


Explore one of the most spectacular places on the planet aboard a 70' schooner and learn about the local Haida culture on this sailing tour. Haida Gwaii (“Islands of the People” in the Haida language) is a remote island archipelago located 70 km off the northwest coast of British Columbia.


  • Haida Gwaii Archipelago
  • Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve
  • Haida Heritage Site
  • National Marine Conservation Area
  • SGang Gwaay Llnagaay
  • K’uuna Llagaay (Skedans)

This is a world where giant moss-laden spruce and cedar trees tower over enchanted salmon streams, and productive kelp forests and colorful intertidal communities fringe the interface between land and sea. The unparalleled diversity of marine life includes everything from puffins to albatrosses, sunfish to jellyfish, and killer whales to blue whales. Enmeshed in this rich ecological tapestry are more than 10,000 years of the cultural heritage of the indigenous Haida Nation, renowned for their prosperity, artistry, and seamanship.

This 9-day expedition is dedicated to exploring and learning about the ecosystems, wildlife, and cultural heritage of Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, Haida Heritage Site, and National Marine Conservation Area. You will visit ancient Haida villages and learn about their histories and people from the Haida Watchmen who protect them. Most famous is SGang Gwaay Llnagaay, abandoned in the late 19th century and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981. Here, a collection of haunting mortuary poles and the wooden house remains to stand testament to the traditional ways of the Haida Nation.

Meeting point: This tour departs from Queen Charlotte City, on Graham Island in British Columbia.
