A 2017 trip aboard MV Atlas will cost the following:

7-day trip cost** (per guest): $ 3,300.00
5% Goods and Services Tax (GST):  $ 165.00
TOTAL COST:   $ 3,465.00 CAD

** The trip cost includes a seaplane flight to or from the vessel (depending on whether your trip is north or southbound). Please note that the 2018 trip cost will be $3500.00 plus GST, and we have recently changed our 2018 deposit requirements and cancellation details (please scroll down).

In addition, your total cost includes:

  • accommodation for 7 full days and nights;
  • all meals and snacks, including one evening dining off-vessel at Rose Harbour, enjoying the legendary cooking of resident Susan Cohen;
  • use of all tour equipment on MV Atlas (including kayaks); and
  • all interpretative activities during your time on MV Atlas, including at Haida village sites.

In the event of circumstances where the seaplane is unable to fly, we will make alternative arrangements for you to reach or depart the vessel for no extra cost.

Guests are responsible for the additional cost of arriving to/departing from Haida Gwaii, accommodation, meals and entertainment before and after the trip, and travel or cancellation insurance.

ADDITIONAL DISCOUNTS

Youth Discounts!
We offer special discounts for youth because we understand the value of memorable family trips. We also believe it is essential that younger people have the opportunity to see and experience this phenomenal part of the world. Due to the nature of our tours and the small group size, we require that family trips have a minimum of five guests (considered a full trip booking), including at least one youth 8 to 17 years old. Youth under the age of 18 receive a 15% discount on the trip cost. Please contact us for more details.

A Trip for Island Residents!
Many islanders have never experienced Gwaii Haanas due to the area’s remoteness and the expense of getting there. We offer a 10% discount on the trip cost for Haida Gwaii residents. Come see why Gwaii Haanas is world-renowned, and why we should all be so proud to call Haida Gwaii home.

Return to the Misty Isles!
There is so much to see and do in Gwaii Haanas, many guests wish to return and explore some more. As a gesture of appreciation, we offer a 10% discount if you have travelled with us previously. We’d love to have you aboard MV Atlas again!

Please note that the youth, island resident, and returning guest discounts are mutually exclusive and cannot be applied in combination with each other.

RESERVATIONS
An $800.00 deposit is required to confirm your reservation with balance of payment due 90 days prior to departure date. Please contact us for details. When you reserve a space on one of our trips, we will send you an invoice via PayPal, or you can pay by cheque or with an international money order in Canadian funds. Due to daily fluctuations in exchange rates, the trip cost in US dollars (or other currencies) will be adjusted to reflect the actual rate of exchange at the time of booking.

** For 2018 trips, please note that we will require a $1000.00 deposit per guest. 

CANCELLATIONS
Please understand that because the trips only have up to six guests, last minute cancellations are a problem for everyone and can put the whole trip at risk. As a result we do not offer refunds if the trip is scheduled to leave within 90 days of the cancellation date. If you cancel more than 90 days in advance of the departure date we will return 50% of your deposit. Please note that we require written notice of cancellation. We understand that situations can unexpectedly change and if you find it necessary to cancel within 90 days prior to departure we will do our very best to fill your reserved space. If we are able to do so, we will refund 75% of the total trip cost. To be on the safe side, we highly recommend purchasing trip/cancellation insurance through a travel agency/agent.

**For 2018 trips, please note that the balance will be due 120 days in advance of your departure date. If you cancel more than 120 days in advance of the departure date we will return 50% of your deposit. If you cancel within 120 days of your departure and we are able to fill your reserved space, we will refund 50% of the total trip cost.
