Vancouver Is. or Queen Charlottes

Both are exceptional places. Haida Gwaii was my primary reason for paddling in the Queen Charlottes. Experiencing and seeing the totem poles and village sites was a primary reason for going there. The park is very big and is difficult to see unless one has many days available. There is a lot of history there and of course much nature to see. But there are parts of Vancouver Island that also are unique and intriguing. Have you been to the Brooks Peninsula, Kyuquot Sound region? Good kayaking there and wildlife abounds plus native cultures as well. A mothership supported trip to the Queen Charlottes would allow you to see this area in a shorter number of days and in relative comfort. keep in mind, it can rain a lot there. Hope this helps you some!
