Ocean Edge Expeditions


Experience the wonders of Haida Gwaii in an unprecedented way. Ocean Edge Expedition is a small, locally-owned and operated company that specializes in sweeping travellers off their feet in an unforgettably spectacular adventure. Choose between land-based and water-based excursions, both which boast authentic exploration opportunities for a quintessentially Haida Gwaii experience.

Partake in a wide array of fantastic hikes scheduled throughout the week, each offering guests wholesome snacks, a hearty lunch, hiking poles and a friendly guide eager to share a wealth of local knowledge. Forestry and local artist excursions are also available. If water is the element you were hoping to dive into, join in on an stand-up paddle board adventure touring the beautiful Tlell River or the equally astounding Mayer Lake. Both SUP excursions cap the day with a delectable meal at a local restaurant that’s sure to satisfy a substantial appetite.

Transportation services are available between Daajiing Giids/Daajing Giids and Tl.aal/Tlell, accommodating up to 14 guests for land-based trips and up to six for water-based trips in a large and comfortable van. Large group tours can be customized to suit specific requests, so be sure to call with your ideas!

Whichever adventure you choose, Ocean Edge Expeditions is the right choice to make the most of your Haida Gwaii experience. Call today or book your next adventure of a lifetime through the company’s convenient booking platform online.

Meet Shelley Sansome

Shelley Sansome possesses an innate zest for life, and yearns to share that excitement with everyone she meets. Since moving to Haida Gwaii in the mid-nineties, she has taken to the island life-style like it was always meant to be. Shelley is big into exploring all that our world has to offer, especially the majestic wonders of her Pacific archipelago community. She is connected in a multitude of ways to nature, always in-tune with Mother Nature and full of gratitude for her endless bounty. For many years, Kundalini yoga has been a mainstay of her entrepreneurial spirit, while more recently immersing herself into a career in tourism excursions. “We strongly believe that Haida Gwaii is a magical place,” shares the entrepreneur. “We're guided by our values of grit, integrity, gratitude, and healthy lifestyles in which we respect our guests, the environment, and the quality of services we provide.”
