A magnificent natural marvel! These salt water rapids reach speeds of 14 knots creating surging water levels and churning waves. Learn fascinating stories about the rapids and Tremble Island, Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw history and view wildlife that frequents the area.
For thousands of years, the Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw have harvested and weaved fibres from the local cedar trees. Join our cedar weaver to learn how to prepare cedar and create your own bracelet, medicine pouch or small case. Cedar weaving classes are conveniently held at the Kwa’lilas Hotel.
