Green Coast is a local company offering guided wilderness expeditions that connect our guests with the people, land, and sea of Haida Gwaii. We specialize in multi-day sea kayak trips within Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site, and now offer a range of adventure services based out of Queen Charlotte.

Gwaii Haanas Expeditions

The heart and soul of Green Coast has always been our week long guided trips into the mystical Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site.  Communal living, respect for nature, and education define our way of being.

Our Company & Home

We are the only locally based operator offering kayak expeditions in Gwaii Haanas, and we are proud to show visitors this mystical territory. All our operations are rooted in a sense of community, environmental responsibility and education.

Bike, Kayak & Paddle Board Rentals

Getting into the wilderness doesn't necessarily require a week. The areas immediately accessible from Queen Charlotte are remarkable, and we are capable of enabling a range of outdoor experiences.

 
Green Coast is run by young locals who are passionate about what they do and whose philosophy is to create a collaborative wilderness adventure that is fun, flexible, and safe. Our trip brought us to ancient Haida sites, pristine beachside campsites, ancient forest walks, bountiful fishing spots and we met plenty of wildlife along the way. I’ll never forget my midnight swim under the shooting stars with glowing salmon and a seal in phosphorescent waters! My only complaint is that no amount of paddling could burn off all the delicious food.

Haida Gwaii

 

Haida Gwaii is a remote and wild archipelago off the northwestern coast of British Columbia, Canada. Here, centuries-old cedar trees hold strong against the ever-changing north Pacific Ocean, while mist and sunshine alter the landscape hourly. These 450 islands are the unceded territory of the Haida people, home to numerous endemic species of flora and fauna, and an essential breeding and feeding ground for a rich array of wildlife. 

Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site is the focal point for many who journey to the edge of the world. Uniquely co-managed by the Haida Nation and the Government of Canada, it contains many ancient Haida village sites set against dramatic backgrounds that share a remarkable history. There is no better way to experience this place than by kayak, propelled by your own strength, and led by an experienced local guide.

We are equally enamoured with the west coast of Graham island, thus the expansion of our services to this lesser-visited area. Accessible by logging roads, an adventure out to these parts means stepping into a corner of the islands where towering mountains form protected inlets ideal for kayaking.

Time spent exploring Haida Gwaii is defined by vast wilderness intertwined with ancient culture, which show themselves to each visitor in a different way with each passing day. Immerse yourself in these islands quietly and respectfully, moving gracefully across the water one stroke at a time. We're here to help show you the way.
