I'd choose Cassiar Cannery again, even over a tropical or European destination. The cabins were charming with furniture made from reclaimed wood.  The hosts were friendly, accommodating and fun.  Scenery amazing!

Oolichan Float

Oolichan are a small, very oily, fish - our area's version of sardines, that attract thousands of eagles, gulls and other birds along with hundreds of sea lions and seals to feast on these high fat fish.  

It is an incredible wildlife viewing experience and a prime trips for photographers.  Mid-March is a best guess for when the bulk of the run comes in, and we may switch to the weekend before/after depending on what is happening on the river. 

 This is a non-invasive, low impact, low noise trip.
