Our 2018 Trip Schedule
Green Coast offers a holistic kayak expedition built upon our core values – Respect for the Haida culture; Respect for the natural world; and Respect for the fellow visitors of Gwaii Haanas. We demonstrate these values through our daily actions, both on and off the water, with a particular focus on continuing education relevant to local history, environment, and skills development. Communal living is another important aspect of these trips as participants will be asked to contribute their best effort towards camp set-up, fire-side cooking, and gear maintenance. In this way our groups are able to experience and accomplish a great deal more during their week – the whole is much greater than the sum of it’s parts. Our experienced guides simply aim to facilitate your connection with this incredible place in whatever way they can.

This trip focuses on reaching the UNESCO World Heritage Site, SGang Gwaay, located on a remote island that acted as a natural fortress to this formerly prominent Haida village. There now remain more than 15 beautifully carved poles, and several house pits, which continue to inspire awe in all those who witness them just as they did hundreds of years ago. Our chosen path to and from SGang Gwaay will be dictated by the weather and tidal conditions that nature provides during the trip. We hope to visit many secluded bays and inlets where black bears ramble the beaches for intertidal snacks, and eagles perch atop ancient trees just beyond. Ideal, yet untrammelled or developed, camp locations can be found throughout southern Gwaii Haanas making this region a world class paddling destination. Opportunity to view a wide range of sea birds and marine mammals that frequent the Pacific North West. Start/End Point – Raspberry Cove, Gwaii Haanas, or proximate locations within Houston Stewart Channel. We return to the same general area as we begin.
