2023 BCMA Gathering - West Coast Adventure

Join us for an adventure you won’t forget. This exclusive boat tour for attendees of the 2023 BCMA gathering in Haida Gwaii will take you west from Daajing Giids through the Skidegate Narrows, scanning the shorelines for taan (black bear). With options to disembark from the boat at Jiina.nga Gandlaay (Government Creek) to explore old growth, check for Tufted Puffins at Marble Island, and visit the Haida village of Ts'aahl. Our tour operator Haida Style Expeditions takes guests out into Gwaii Haanas and beyond on two 30-foot closed-cabin landing craft and catamaran tour vessels. In addition to visiting Haida cultural sites, we will get out of the boat midday for a traditional Haida feast on land, for local salmon and stories. The trip also includes guides from the community who will share their ecological and cultural knowledge with you.

The boats have a washroom aboard, covered, forward facing seating and a few side-facing seating options outside the cabin. Lunch is provided as part of the tour. The company provides gumboots, rainproof waders and floater jackets or life jackets to go over your own jacket depending on your preference. Rain gear is recommended to block both wind and water!

The tour is planned to head to Ts’aahl on the West Coast. It is highly weather dependent and if the weather is not suitable for this route, the trip will be adapted to an alternative route with less exposure. No matter where we travel, this day will be filled with wildlife viewing, sightseeing, history and adventure.
