Wilderness Adventure


Explore far and wide

For those looking to explore the waterways, fjords and bays of the Broughton Archipelago or visit the mountains, glaciers and river systems of the Great Bear Rainforest, a Coastal Safari or Helicopter Adventure day-trip is the perfect selection. Take to the skies in your personal helicopter to take in the vast expanses of untamed wilderness from white sand beaches to snow topped peaks, complete with a gourmet picnic lunch in a breath-taking location. Or, if you prefer sea-level adventures, board a custom built, ultra comfortable boat to cruise through dramatic inlets seeking wildlife viewing opportunities. Book both day-trips to truly immerse yourself in the wild surroundings from sea to sky and everywhere in between.
