Birding and Volcanic Geology in Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve

It may not be the most stable surface for birding and volcanic geology observation, but our sailboat proved manoeuvrable enough for our eager Gwaii Haanas sailing cruise guests off Tuft Islets, on the edge of Lyell Island. The spectacular basalt columns which crystallized eons ago to form Tuft Islets never cease to fascinate, as do the bird sightings we are lucky enough to come across as we exit Laskeek Bay and head southeast along the western slope of Hecate Strait.
