In 2010, Bluewater Adventures added the North Coast/ Khutzeymateen to its quiver of adventures. It is a part of the BC coast that has intrigued Bluewater Skippers for years.
The outer Islands provide habitat for marine life like humpback whales,orca, porpoise, and sea lions. Heading inland towards the very remote Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary we prepare for some of the best grizzly bear viewing on the BC coast. Few operators are permitted to explore this region, boasting Canada's only grizzly bear sanctuary, and we are very fortunate to spend 7 days learning about large carnivores of BC with bear specialist, Paul Paquet.

Join your favourite Bluewater Crew on this amazing trip exploring a multitude of landscapes - rugged Islands, protected fiords winding to remote estuaries, hanging bogs and First Nations villages.

Over the last 35 years of hosting trips in Haida Gwaii, formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands, Bluewater crew have witnessed that trips taking place in the spring are typically more "active" in terms of wildlife. It is estimated that up to 1.5 million birds nest in Haida Gwaii including petrels, puffins, auklets, murres, peregrine falcons,
bald eagles, cormorants and black oyster catchers - just to name a few. Because this rich archipelago lies on the Pacific flyway, it is a birders paradise with many of the species endemic to this coastline.

What brings the birds, also brings the marine mammals! Copepods, minute marine organisms, are typically plentiful in the spring months creating a feeding frenzy. We often see a greater number of humpback whales, returning to feed after their long migration from their wintering grounds in the south. We look forward to seeing stellar sea lions, harbour seals, dalls porpoise and pacific white-sided dolphins on this amazing voyage into Haida history. We voyage south through Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve with shore excursions each day to ancient Haida Village sites. Winding strolls through moss covered cedar groves - old growth forests taking us back in time to a land, seemingly forgotten.
