  • Seabirds possible from ferry (large, comfortable vessel) include Sooty, Pink-footed and Short-tailed shearwaters, Pomarine and Parasitic jaegers, Northern Fulmar, Fork-tailed Storm-Petrel, Cassin's Auklet and Yellow-billed Loon.
  • A number of 'island endemic' subspecies can be found on Haida Gwaii including Hairy Woodpecker, Steller's Jay and the Northern Saw-whet Owl.
  • Waterfowl including all three species of scoters, Long-tailed Duck, and the stunning Harlequin Duck all likely.
  • The islands have attracted a mouth-watering list of rarities over the years such as Spotted Redshank, Curlew Sandpiper, Common Cuckoo, Brambling and Rustic Bunting, just to name a few. 
  • In addition to birds, mammals we may see include Humpback Whale, Orca, Steller's Sea-Lions, Harbour Seals and Black-tailed Deer. With luck, perhaps we'll see one of North America's largest Black Bears.
