Meet Danny Robertson & Nika Collison

Husband and wife, Danny Robertson and Nika Collison have a strong connection to the ocean. It made sense for them to start a business that involved what they love - the land, the people and the water.

Highlander Marine Services is a marine freight and passenger transport business. They also assist with project logistics and transport planning for island projects large and small. They love operating their business on Haida Gwaii. "You have more intimate relationships with your customers by virtue of living in a small community and relying on each other in many different ways," said Danny. "When we work with our people, we get to see the positive results of the work we do, there's a real sense of accomplishment."

Danny and Nika know the value of a healthy young population and are proud to support Swan Bay and T'aalag Stl'ang Youth Rediscovery Program through the services of Highlander Marine.
