Cruising through the territory of the Kitasoo/Xaixais First Nation People, National Geographic Venture anchored in a bay to prepare for an exciting day. The morning was chock full of activities with kayaking, Zodiac cruising, multiple hike options, and presentations by naturalists Lee Moll and Zoey Greenberg.

In the evening we cruised up to a roaring waterfall while taking in the magnificent views of the surrounding landscape. Low-lying clouds snaked through the mountainside that was covered in lush temperate rainforest, British Columbia’s highlight ecosystem.
