DO IT

Backpacker - - 365 Days Of Adventure -

Get­ting there Fly (from Van­cou­ver) or ferry (from Port Hardy) to Bella Bella. Sea­son May to Septem­ber Per­mit None, though many spots are sa­cred or off-lim­its. DIY trips are not rec­om­mended for any but the most ex­pe­ri­enced kayak­ers; ask lo­cals about sa­cred sites if you go alone. Route End­less op­tions, but try this: Get dropped off at Goose Is­land, fol­low its pro­tected east­ern shore, cross to the McMullins, and then cross east to make your way to Calvert Is­land.
