The Plan

Where the Idea began

It all started while I was still in the middle of our 

2019 trip around Vancouver Island. I was loving every minute of mental clarity that came from being committed only to paddling somewhere new every day. As we made our way towards Cape Scott from Port Hardy I stared North at Queen Charlotte Strait and wondered what it would be like to keep paddling ‘up’…

Over the following winter a plan began to crystallize in my head. At first I thought of paddling from Victoria to Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska and back again, then I imagined crossing Heckate Strait and circumnavigating Haida Gwaii along the way, then I wondered how far I could go if I didn’t make a round-trip. Soon I was dreaming of paddling the whole summer from Victoria, BC to Homer, Alaska and returning in the fall by state ferry.
