Did the Haida venture as far as California?

Yes, and further, according to this website:|
"Haidas traveled and captured [slaves] as far away as California."
"Haida oral narratives also record journeys as far north as the Bering Sea, and one account raises a reasonable possibility that Asia was even visited by Haidas before Europeans entered the Pacific."
also talks about California-based abalone shell found in Haida locations, although this does not definitively say that the Haida travelled to California or if the abalone were traded with other travellers.
