Hot Spring Island, Come for the water, but stay for the scenery. 

Hotspring Island, formerly known as Volcanic Island in English and Gandll K’in Gwaayaay (“Hot-Water-Island”) in Haida, is a small island off the southeast coast of Lyell Island in the Haida Gwaii archipelago off the North Coast of British Columbia, Canada. The names of the islands are derived from a hot spring on the island’s southwestern tip, the temperature has been measured at 162 °F (72 °C). The island is managed by the Haida Gwaii Watchmen and is part of the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked Haida Gwaii in October 2012, stopping the springs. Pools were emptied in October 2012 after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook Haida Gwaii. Since then, hot water has slowly returned to the pools.

Today, the Watchmen guard those traditions for future generations while still looking after one of Gwaii Haanas’ most peculiar locations. Temperatures ranging from 32° C to 77° C (89° F to 170° F), the springs seep from at least 26 tiny vents. While its mineral content makes it taste salty, the water is not seawater.


 

there was a fear the springs were going to be gone forever, but months after, there was some seepage from new spots. eventually, the pools started to fill, and In 2017, three new pools were built, the top one was 74C° There are changerooms and outhouses too.

Nature lovers looking for a wild experience can visit Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area, and Haida Heritage Site. Gwaii Haanas provides a genuine break from the daily, with no traffic, shops, or mobile phone coverage to deter you from the ancient mountains, rich aquatic life, and fascinating Haida culture that surround you.

There are only two ways to get to Gwaii Haanas: by air or by sea. A licensed tour operator can take the guesswork out of securing permits and transportation to the islands, but even traveling to Gwaii Haanas can be an experience for the independent traveler.

 

The initial move is to travel to Haida Gwaii. Pacific Coastal Airlines and Air Canada Jazz regularly fly between Vancouver and Masset or Sandspit; there are also six weekly ferry sailings between Prince Rupert and Skidegate.
The suggested mode of transportation into Gwaii Haanas is by kayak – a two-day journey from Moresby Camp. Moresby Camp also has the nearest boat launch for small propelled boats. Both boaters must have enough fuel and provisions to last the length of their journey, prepare for weather delays, and be aware of the dangers along their path. Here are few more useful connections.

The foreground of this photo is one of the hotspring fed pools in Gwaii Haanas National Park. The naturally supplied pool was a perfect hot tub temperature with the best view.
