Bluewater Adventures | Haida Gwaii Cruise, British Columbia

Holiday Duration: 7 Nights

Overview

Overview

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 or Island Solitude for an adventure through the isles of Gwaii Haanas and experience diverse wilderness and wildlife on this amazing nature cruise.

The Island Solitude
This new vessel carries the same number of guests – on average 12. The increase in amenities of this vessel includes 6 guest cabins with two side-by-side berths and private, ensuite bathrooms in each. The on deck wheelhouse is expanded so the entire group can share deliciously prepared meals together while enjoying incredible, 360 degree vews! Environmentally, the engines exceed EPA emission standards and the modern hull design was designed for improved sailing performance making it more efficient for travel whether motoring or under sail.

The Island Roamer
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.

"This was our 3rd Canadian holiday with Frontier Canada"

This was our 3rd Canadian holiday with Frontier Canada – we always come back to them as we know we will get a good quality holiday with no nasty surprises. Our latest holiday was arranged by Joanne, who provided an excellent service. She was able to advise us on which of their tours was the best fit for the sort of holiday we were looking for and then help us to tailor it to our exact requirements, changing flight days, removing bits from the suggested itinerary and adding others, arranging pre-booked tours and anticipating potential pitfalls (for instance when the ferry timetable changed, meaning we had to add in a night at Saint John as it was too long a drive to the next location). She really knew the area – even down to where we would get the best breakfasts by pre-booking at our accommodation and where we were better off going into town.
