Gwaii Haanas: Islands on the Edge Day 7 and 8

Today was our last full day onboard, and what a great day it was.

We started off the morning with a forest walk in Anna inlet, during our walk we spotted a martin running across a fallen log over the river! We spent an hour or so quietly walking on our own taking in the sights of the giant old growth trees towering around us.


As we walked a few guests were able to take the time to explore the inlet in the kayaks in the morning sun.

That afternoon we had a wicked sail. We glided over the water for hours had lunch on the aft deck under sail then proceeded to troll for salmon! In the late afternoon we had travelled a long distance, all the way back to Skedans, our first stop on day one.


A few of us piled into the zodiac and went for a fish off the rocks where a beautiful coho was caught! We returned to the ship, where Russ expertly filleted the salmon and Chef Geoff prepared it for dinner!

We wrapped up our final evening with a chart chat and reflected on what a wonder trip it had been.

The next morning went by quite quick. We had a wonderful last breakfast packed up the ship and made our way back into Moresby Camp to unload the ship and hop back into the van. Just like that our week onboard had concluded and it was time to say goodbye. Goodbye to friendships made, goodbye to the serenity of living at sea on Passing Cloud, and goodbye to Haida Gwaii.
