Queen Charlotte City and Old Masset

May 11, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Lion


We motored into the harbor and approached Albion Dock on a beautiful, cool, clear morning in Queen Charlotte. It was calm in port, and the numerous work and pleasure vessels on the docks reflected in the glassy water. We started our day by loading onto busses to make the 90-kilometer trip to Old Masset to observe master Haida carvers and artists at their trade. It was a beautiful drive along the coast, and we sighted four or five grey whales slightly offshore. What a treat! A fun-filled day of art, dance, traditional food, and a brisk walk through a place of natural beauty in Haida Gwaii.
