NOTICE: Season Closure 2021

With a heavy heart and out of an abundance of caution, Ocean Edge Expeditions will not be offering tours for the 2021 season to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and its variants.  We are a new business and do not have the financial means to provide recommended social distancing measures.  A number of established businesses on Haida Gwaii are up and running, please check out links to their websites at About\Travel Planning.  

As part of reopening protocols and procedures, the Council of the Haida Nation have developed a visitor orientation and sustainability pledge to educate guests about how to prepare for your visit and act in an ecologically and culturally responsible way.  We must all do our part to respect Haida culture, land, ocean, and air for future generations.  

We look forward to opening May 2022!
