We spent two days here journeying by boat and plane. The guides we used provided all the historical context we needed and the Watchmen were exceptional.
We visited the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve in August 2016 with Atlas Ocean Tours. The MV Atlas is a sturdy comfortable boat that seems to expand to fit its occupants. Its skipper, James, is a capable, entertaining host, well-versed in all aspects of seamanship, cuisine and history. The whole program, from the time we booked to the tour itself,... 更多
We toured the park on a 4-day tour with Moresby Explorers. Can't say enough about the experience - it was awesome. So glad this park protects this special place.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our wonderful trip through Gwaii Haanas on board the MV Atlas. It was their first excursion of the year, and we enjoyed a beautiful, serene journey through the national park visiting most of the Haida village sites, including Skedans, Tanu and culminating at SGaang Gwaii. Along the way, we enjoyed some great fishing, kayaking,... 更多
This is a unique experience exploring this wonderfully diverse archipelago of islands but not for those perhaps faint of heart. We had grand weather, an extremely competent and respectful guide/mariner and ideal tides to enjoy a 4 day trip to see the very special places caretaken by the Haida Watchmen. It was truly a privilege to be there.
Our 4-day trip with Moresby Explorers included visits to several sites in or near the park including abandoned lumber and fishery sites and abandoned aboriginal villages (New Kloo, Skedans, Tanu, SGang Gwaay). The UNESCO site at SGang Gwaay is the highlight because of its remote location and large collection of totems – if you visit this, the other former villages... 更多
Difficult to add to what has already been said by other reviewers. I would consider this a 'generalist' tour. It is not a fishing trip per se, although you can fish often and the skipper knows the place to go to and you can even catch fish ( one of us caught a 30 lbs Halibut!). It is not a... 更多
NOT for the casual visitor or faint of heart ... BUT . been on my "bucket list" for years and soooo glad to haves seen it in my life! I joined a Moresby Explorers 4 day tri and was completely pleased!
This is our third trip to south Moresby Island, two were prior to its designation as Gwaii Haanas National Park. We flew from Queen Charlotte City to Rose Harbor and then spent 6 days on the water, aboard the Island Bay mothership from Archipelago Ventures. We kayaked, visited four of the historical Haida villages with tours with the Haida Watchmen,... 更多
