The Rarely Explored Lower Skeena River and Canneries

The lower Skeena River where it enters into the Pacific Ocean is one of the most historic areas in this region but one of the most seldom visited.  There are a few reasons for this.

  1. The tides in this area fluctuate greatly each day and can expose sand bars and make access to some of the sites difficult.  The timing of launching a boat and accessing the sites needs to be planned out to ensure the tides do not leave you stranded.
  2. The area has limited access points to launch a jet boat which is needed to navigate this area of the Skeena
  3. I don’t think people realize just how many interesting sites there are to see in this area

Here are some photos of past guests enjoying the unique sites and nature.

Join us for another tour of the remote and unique area May 15-18, 2018
