Masset
Masset (pop. 884) is 40 km (25 miles) north of Port Clements at the end of Highway 16 and is the largest community on Graham Island. This quiet village offers all the basic amenities such as restaurants, hotel/motel accommodations, grocery stores and a local hospital. Fishing guides, charter services, launching and moorage facilities are readily available directly in town.


Masset is home to Canada’s most northwesterly 9-hole golf course, Dixon Entrance Golf and Country Club. Teeing off while listening to the tide crash into the shore is something worth experiencing.


Old Masset
Old Masset is the administrative seat of the Council of the Haida Nation. Haida artisans create argillite carvings, handcrafted gold, silver and abalone jewellery and other Haida treasure with local stores carrying their artwork. The Haida are known throughout the world for their art and sculpting - some of which is currently on display at the Vancouver International Airport.


Graham Island
Graham Island is the largest, most accessible and most populated of Haida Gwaii. The average actual rainfall here is higher than the average rainfall at Vancouver International Airport, but less than that of North Vancouver. The isolation and climate make the islands distinctly different from the mainland and permit unique subspecies to thrive here. Luxurious rain forests, shell scattered shorelines and sandy beaches provide superlative wilderness adventures.

History :

The Haida First Nation people have lived on Haida Gwaii for thousands of years. They have been referred to as the Vikings of the Northwest Pacific for their seafaring prowess. They are also well known as skilled artists, importing raw materials from the mainland and transforming them into amazing works that could still be functional. Today there are two major Haida communities left on Haida Gwaii, Old Masset and Skidegate. Both communities are vital to the island’s major industries while preserving their cultural heritage.


Haida Gwaii was the first place in British Columbia discovered and recorded by a European, Juan Perez, in July 1774. In 1787 British explorer Captain George Dixon named the islands Queen Charlotte after his ship and his Queen. In 2009 the Queen Charlotte Islands officially were renamed Haida Gwaii.
