The drive to Prince Rupert from Calgary was excellent. Nice weather, little traffic, wonderful scenery. We motelled one night along the way and arrived in PR about 2:00 pm. We had to buy ferry tickets, assemble our bikes and our gear for 4 days of biking and 10 days of kayaking. We had halibut at Dolly’s before riding our bikes onto the ferry and our overnight trip.
We cycled North from Charlotte City, on Graham Island through Skidegate, Tlell, Port Clements, Masset an Old Masset. We returned the same way and then took the small ferry to Moresby Island and Sandspit where we met up with our kayak crew. (Separate Post)
We kayaked for ten days, from the south end of Gwaii Haanas National Park to near the north end. We visited SGang Gwaay, the Haida site that is the least advanced in its gradual return to nature. We had one stormed in day and seven days of glorious weather and wonderful kayaking. (Separate Post)
