This natural history sailing trip explores the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, in the southern Queen Charlotte Islands. These islands form a unique archipelago situated (50 miles/80 kilometers) west of Prince Rupert on British Columbia's Northwest coast. Often referred to as Canada's own 'Galapagos' the Queen Charlotte Islands have a unique vegetation, wildlife and cultural history that has evolved in relative isolation over the last several thousand years.

Evidence suggests that parts of the islands remained unglaciated during the last 10,000 years, offering refuge for animals and plants. The area is geologically active and has seen massive fluctuations in sea level. The islands are the epicenter of Haida culture and Gwaii Haanas has been honored with a United Nations World Heritage Site. During this spectacular adventure you will have the opportunity to visit sacred sites, feel the solitude of the wilderness, and experience the wildlife and Haida culture.
