Today, guests of the had the privilege to visit the Haida Heritage Center near Queen Charlotte City, Haida Gwaii.  The heritage center houses an incredible collection of past and present Haida art and culture, including a carving shed where a totem pole was being carved by artisans in the community.   After lunch, guests were able to stretch their legs on a hike up to the scenic Spirit Lake before boarding our trusty ship to cross the Hecate Strait back to the mainland of Canada.
