Kayaking Haida Gwaii (formerly the 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 Hecate Strait, Haida Gwaii, ‘Islands of the People” in the Haida Language, is ecologically unique. 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.
Our Haida Gwaii kayak tours operate within Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area Reserve, and Haida Heritage Site. The Government of Canada and the Council of the Haida Nation cooperatively manage Gwaii Haanas through the Archipelago Management Board. Visitors to this area are limited, due the remoteness and a strict quota system implemented by Parks Canada.
