Season in Haida Gwaii off to Stunning Start...

Friendly Humpbacks pause for photos

Gifted with wonderful weather, the first trips in Haida Gwaii have garnered praise from both guests and Bluewater Crew! Sunny days and rainbows, the vessels being surrounded by 60-80 humpback whales feeding on krill - including 2-3 curious individuals who spent hours floating by the vessels and spraying our guests with stinky whale breath!
The birds have been ever present with 100's of puffins and common mergansers, rafts of sooty shearwaters, pigeon guillemots and gulls aplenty.
Captain Randy called in with the first fin whale sighting this season - what a start to an an incredible season! Come and experience it for yourself!

See more about our vessels here...

 5) Learn that these waters are full of whales and other marine mammals.

The Great Bear Rainforest provides shelter and salmon-rich waters for the many species that we observe on our expeditions. Bluewater Crew and onboard Naturalists share their passion and knowledge of the wildlife we will encounter.

 6) Learn of the importance of salmon.

Salmon is the "keystone species" in this region - it is largely the reason why the Great Bear Rainforest is so great! It feeds coastal wolves, eagles and other birds, black bears, the grizzlies and the Spirit Bear. It nourishes the forest. It would be a very different place without them...


 7) Be willing to wait...

Our Gitga'at bear guides take us to their favourite bear viewing areas. This very special place is one of the only areas that the Kermode resides. Perched nicely atop a salmon stream, with cameras poised, we hope to catch a glimpse of the legendary Spirit Bear!

8) And with good luck...!
