Graham Island & Moresby Island Trip Package
Last week we explored the participating accommodations, eateries, Haida artist studio and land or kayaking tour included in the North Graham Island Haida Gwaii Trip Package. Transportation for the North Graham Island Trip Package is made possible by Pacific Coastal Airlines.
This week, we’ll check out our Graham Island & Moresby Island Trip Package which begins with a ferry passage (think ocean cruise!) for two ('undersized' vehicle included) from Prince Rupert to Skidegate, compliments of BC Ferries. The passage across the Hecate Strait can be a most breathtaking experience with views of islands, marine wildlife and oceangoing activity. Travel is weather dependent and it is always a good idea to allow yourself extra time for weather delays, particularly in the winter months.The voyage takes approximately seven hours to complete, and you'll arrive ready to begin your adventures on Haida Gwaii!
