The cedar and Sitka spruce here are the biggest I've seen, and they're beautiful with long moss hanging from the branches like decorations. You will also see ancient carved poles and abandoned longhouses. Other things you'll see there are wildlife: bald eagles, bears, whales, porpoises...More

We went with Bluewater Adventures and their crew and boat (S/V Island Solitude) were wonderful. So many highlights - you must visit their website to get an idea. Top notch in every way.
