Bluewater Adventures Haida Gwaii Cruise, British Columbia
The Haida Gwaii - formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands - are remote and provide an unparalleled natural history experience - amazing wildlife, old-growth rainforests, hot springs, and ancient Haida native villages. Haida Gwaii is home to the Haida - one of the most culturally rich and developed groups of people to inhabit early North America. The Haida name for the southern islands, Gwaii Haanas, appropriately translates as “islands of beauty” or “place of wonder” and are often called the Canadian Galapagos.
The ancient Haida sites are powerful places, and the wildlife showcases how truly unique and diverse the BC Coast is. Come aboard on the Island Roamer for an adventure through the isles of Gwaii Haanas and experience diverse wilderness and wildlife on this amazing nature cruise.
The brand new flagship vessel, Island Solitude, will be operating some of these tours from 2018; ask us for details.

This trip will start with overnight accommodation at the Inn at Sandspit, very close to the airport.
You will be met the following morning after breakfast at 830 by your trip guide. You will be taken by bus to the ferry landing and across to Skidegate on Graham Island. Activities for the day include a visit to the Haida Heritage Centre, followed by a traditional Haida lunch, renowned for its collection of Haida artifacts, and the new Qay’llnagaay Centre with its six new totem poles.
Following lunch, we may have time for a short walk around Spirit Lake before catching the ferry back to Moresby Island. Then you will be off to meet up with the Island Roamer, anchored at Moresby Camp, and her Crew. After boarding the vessel, introductions, a safety orientation and cabin assignments dinner will be served. You will spend the first evening anchored nearby and will depart early the next morning into the waters of Southern Moresby Island to explore the Gwaii Haanas Park Reserve.Close
You will spend your time exploring the eastern and southern shores of Moresby Island. Daily activities include wildlife watching, shore excursions to explore beautiful forested creek walks, ancient Haida villages and perhaps exploring the shoreline by kayak. Each evening the boat will anchor in a different secluded spot in time for slide shows and discussions on the wildlife sightings encountered during the day. The daily itinerary is flexible to meet group interests, weather patterns and to take full advantage of wildlife sightings.
There are some 8 night departures, so this time on the cruise maybe extended by 1 night
The trip will finish mid morning and you will disembark “Island Roamer” at 11:00am at Moresby Camp. There will be charter bus waiting to shuttle the group to Sandspit airport. The trip by bus takes about an hour. You can expect to arrive in Sandspit by midday. This will give you time to have lunch and do any last minute shopping at the souvenir shop located in the Sandspit Airport, prior to an afternoon flight to Vancouver or if you are not flying to Vancouver you can make easy connections to ferries or rent a car and continue your holidays.Close

The Island Roamer is a custom 68-foot ketch, launched in 1983. The boat's design, safety and comfort make her perfect for these trips. She features 8 private cabins (double occupancy), 3 heads with hot showers, a large comfortable lounge with an extensive library, and a well-equipped galley. On deck, the large covered seating area provides protection in all types of weather. The Island Roamer is large enough for comfort, privacy and safety, and small enough to create a good rapport among passengers and crew.
A certified Canadian Ministry of Transport passenger vessel, Island Roamer has all of the safety equipment, electronic navigation aids, and features you would expect from a vessel of her standard. All of our cabins have adequate storage space for your bags, personal items and jackets. Coat hangers and life jackets are stowed in every cabin for your convenience. There is electricity in each room, so you can charge your camera batteries and enjoy a reading light in the evening.
We have 8 private cabins, based on double occupancy. At the time of booking, you may request a type of cabin you would like - single berths or if you and your traveling partner prefer, a double berth cabin. Single travelers do not have the choice of the double berth cabin. Specific room bookings are up to the crew once you have arrived onboard the vessel.
