The remote wilderness of Gwaii Haanas National Park in British Columbia offers the perfect location for this small group trip. Travelling on a comfortable yacht allows you to get close to black bears, humpback whales, orca and a wealth of seabirds.

The Haida Gwaii – or Queen Charlotte Islands – are one of North America's richest biological and cultural areas. The shores of Moresby Island contain Gwaii Haanas National Park, an area of immense natural beauty that comprises over 100 islands, forested creeks, rugged headlands and sheltered channels between towering mountains. Seven whale species frequent these waters and in early summer thousands of Steller's sealions occupy the beaches. The islands' rich ecosystem also supports breeding colonies of up to a million seabirds.
