See Community Map

Masset is the Gateway to Naikoon Provincial Park and is world renowned in the sportfishing community for its easy access to the productive Salmon and Halibut grounds located northwest of the community.

Masset has all needed amenities for the traveler including a wide variety of accommodation and restaurants.

Some of the main features to investigate in Masset include:

The Delkatla Wildlife Sanctuary, a 228ha wetland set aside for many migrating and resident birds. There are observation towers and several trails through the refuge. Over 140 species have been recorded here, including trumpeter swans, peregrine falcons and bald eagles. The Delkatla Nature Centre is located on Trumpeter Drive. Call 626-5015 for information and hours.

Canada’s most westerly golf course, The Dixon Entrance Golf Course, located 5 km east of Masset offers scenic vistas along Haida Gwaii’s north coast over looking Dixon Entrance and the southern Islands of the Alaskan panhandle. Non members are encouraged to play a few rounds literally, as the course circles around CFB Masset part of the early warning system for North America during the tense Cold War period.

The Dixon Entrance Maritime Museum located at the western end of Collison Ave. was originally the community’s first hospital built in 1914. Through a federal grant and the countless hours of many committed and dedicated community members the building was extensively renovated and seismically upgraded and now houses some fascinating exhibits about the European settlement of Masset and the areas maritime history. Admission is well worth the $2 charged.
