We will be entertained by accounts of the rich culture and history from the shishalh Nation as told by our ambassador. While hearing some of the legends and lore we will see village sites and pictographs during the travel around Porpoise Bay. The abundance that exists in the pockets and bays here provided sustinance. The shelter of the natural landscape made this an ideal winter village site.

Shishálh Cultural Tours depart from Sechelt’s municipal Dock on Anchor Way in Porpoise Bay (right beside the Lighthouse Pub). Get out on the water and enjoy the soft afternoon lights in this protected area. As the tour begins and you are taken around this significant area your cultural host will explain some of the interesting aspects of life of the Sishalah Nation. These inland waters, our marine highways, the inlets, once travelled with cedar dugout canoes, are picturesque with nature, and an abundance of sea life, birds, sea creatures and mammals. Our First Nation guides will share with you our ancient and contemporary stories, legends and Aboriginal ways of living.
“Bryce is extremely knowledgeable and provided a most informative commentary on the trip, with a wealth of information about the early history and settlement of the area, the geographical formation of the bodies of water, the importance of the resource economies, and kept us entertained with a few well chosen jokes. He brought us in close to a number of ancient pictographs and made for a most interesting and informative day.”
