Skedans Exploration


Route: Moresby Camp to Tanu

Bookings: Sold out! Join us for one of our other adventures...

Description:This trip explores the more exposed eastern edge of Louise Island, where we can visit Skedans (K’uuna Llnagaay) - a beautiful Haida Heritage site with standing mortuary poles and moss covered house pits. We will also pass the well-known Limestone Islandin Laskeek Bay, which is part of the K’uuna Gwaay conservancy and home to thousands of nesting sea birds, including the ancient and marbled murrelet.  Marine mammals such as the humpback whale and sea lion also frequent this region. The ancient village of Tanu (T’aanuu Llnagaay) is situated within more sheltered waters and often leaves an enduring sense of awe and wonder with those who visit. This trip extends north beyond the official Gwaii Haanas park boundary into an area that is exquisitely beautiful, rich in cultural and environmental highlights, and less frequently visited by other tour operators.

Difficulty: Applicable to all levels of paddlers.

Start/End: Your trip starts and ends in Sandspit.

Transport:A local zodiac tour operator, Moresby Explorers Ltd., will pick you up or drop you off in Sandspit, driving the 1 hour distance to Moresby Camp on a logging road. Depending on the trip - we will either launch or land at Moresby Camp. The zodiac ride to or from Tanu is 1-2 hours long. *Unlike our other routes, this trip only entails 1 transport and so we can offer it at a reduced rate.

Cost: 1,800 CAD
