I and two friends signed up for the 4 day paddle and camp around the Broken Group. Our guide - Philipp Winter - was friendly, attentive, patient and knowledgeable. As a prairie girl, I learned a tremendous amount from our guide about sea life and tides. We had many peaceful encounters with wildlife including harbour seals, bald eagles, black tail deer, garter snakes, common mergansers and banana slugs (ick). We also interacted with anemones, hermit crabs, bat star fish, and moon jelly fish. We heard there were orcas in the area but didn't see any ourselves. We ate a variety of kelp and sea asparagus. Concerns about the red tide (PSP) prevented us from harvesting shellfish.
Philipp was also very knows knowleable about First Nations anthropology and shared stories of the Tseshat (sp) nation.
Bathroom facilities on the major islands we visited (Benson, Hand, Willis) were composting toilets but were clean and well cared for.
The food was also excellent and abundant. Ask for the Robson Bites pancakes and the curry.
