Aristazabal Island

A Rarely seen part of British Columbia

I have done several trips with Due West Charters - two in the Gulf Islands [1,2], and one other on the Mid Coast of British Columbia.  This year Jan was offering a new trip to the area surrounding Aristazabal Island - a region North of Bella Bella.  This was a trip into one of the least populated places on the coast of BC and unspoiled wilderness.

Day 1 and 2

We head north from Bella Bella and gain our kayaking legs.  An inter tidal exploration at Day point shows us what is lurking just beneath the water.

Day 3 and 4

Princess Royal Island is famous for it's white "kermode" bears.  We spent time at the forest/river/ocean boundary trying to find these reclusive bears.
