Overview

The Queen Charlotte Visitor Center is located on the waterfront with gorgeous ocean views. Open year round, we are the best local source of information on visiting Haida Gwaii. Inside the longhouse inspired building you will find engaging, resourceful staff, artisan galleries, an extensive gift shop as well as useful interpretive materials including a touch tank saltwater aquarium. Head outside to our interpretive garden and picnic area to relax and take in the fresh air. We also have a large parking area for RVs and clean indoor public restrooms.

Perfect place to get started in Haida Gwaii. They always had what tour groups still had room in their tours or the staff could recommend hiking adventures or other places to explore and were quite knowledgable on road conditions to access these places.

We recently went on a trip to Haida Gwaii for 8 days. We used the center on two occasions for assistance. The staff person was informed and of assistance both times. We got maps and hints and good down to earth advice.
