Day 04-08
Prince Rupert – Skidegate / Queen Charlotte Islands
After a leisurely included breakfast, we board the Queen of Prince Rupert for a comfortable ride across Hecate Strait. The crossing will take approximately six hours. Welcome to the Queen Charlotte Islands! A local guide will accompany us during our stay in the Queen Charlottes, and provide transportation by school bus. We discover the rich and dynamic culture of the Haida nation who lives in the Queen Charlotte Islands, known as Haida Gwaii, and explore these misty, moody, hauntingly beautiful “islands of the people”. During our four-night stay in the Queen Charlottes, we start each morning with an included breakfast before starting on the day’s adventure. We tour the world-class Queen Charlotte Museum where we see monumental Haida totems, contemporary Haida art and argillite carvings. We see the modern Haida village at Skidegate and visit the Haida Longhouse. During the drive along the east coast of Graham Island we see the spectacular stretch of the sandy north beach and the incredible mossy rainforest along the old dunes. We stop at the Tlell sand dunes, Balance Rock, St. Mary’s Spring and Agate Beach. A picnic lunch is included at Jungle Beach. We pass through the little village of Port Clements with a stop at the museum that specializes in the pioneer history of the Islands. A further drive north brings us to Massett. The Indian Village of Haida has several craft shops with silver, wood and argillite carvings and we tour the B.C. Packers fish processing plant. (Subject to availability.) We visit the Ed Jones Haida Museum, which is located in the old schoolhouse on the north side of Old Massett, to shop for Haida artwork. We drive along the North Beach of Graham Island to Naikoon Provincial Park where we admire the ocean’s power at The Blowhole. The top of Tow Hill offers a magnificent view of the coast, and the shoreline has great beachcombing. We take a walk through a forest of huge spruce and cedar trees to see the famous Golden Spruce on the banks of the Yakoun River and the remains of a Haida dugout canoe. From Juskatla, we follow logging roads across the mountains to see the wild and remote west coast of Graham Island at Rennell Sound. These lovely beaches are exposed to the open Pacific and you never know what treasures might be found. A picnic lunch is provided at Rennell Sound. A short ferry ride from Skidegate takes us to Alliford Bay on Moresby Island, just 15 km south of Sandspit. We sightsee on Moresby Island to Siwash Rock and Gray Bay Beach. We return to Queen Charlotte at the end of the day.
