Copper Beech House   Haida Gwaii

Getting Here…

Flying Into Masset From Vancouver (South Terminal)

There is an airport in Masset with Pacific Coastal flights from Vancouver as well. Copper Beech House is located 5 minutes from the Masset airport.

Flying Into Sandpit From Vancouver

If you are flying into Sandspit (located on Moresby island) from Vancouver you will need to hire a car. Budget rents cars at the airport and if you say you are staying with us you should receive a 10% discount.  It’s a good idea to book your car ahead of time, due to high demand. You can also rent cars in Queen Charlotte from Rustic Rentals (Toll free 1-877-559-4641.) From the airport you would take the shuttle bus (bookings should be made in advance with Eagle Transit to Alliford Bay and then take the ferry across to Skidegate Landing on Graham Island. It is approximately 15 minutes from the airport to the ferry terminal and then a 15-minute ferry ride across. You can check the BC Ferries website for the running times but they usually link up with the flights (provided they are on time).

From Skidegate Landing, it is approximately a 1 hour and 20 minute drive north to Masset. There is only one highway linking all the towns. Follow signs to Skidegate, Tlell, Port Clements and then Masset.

 When you get to Masset you will see Masset Grocery on the right, and Haida Wild Seafood. Turn left and drive across the causeway, turn left again and you are on Delkatla. Take the next left and park on left, across from Copper Beech House. We are located at 1590 Delkatla (corner of Delkatla  and Collison) on the water side and overlooking the government dock.

 There is an airport in Masset with Pacific Coastal flights from Vancouver as well. We are only located 5 minutes from the Masset airport.

Travelling From Prince Rupert

Your options to travel to Haida Gwaii from Prince Rupert are either by seaplane or ferry. All larger carriers (i.e. Pacific Coastal and Air Canada) only operate between Vancouver and Haida Gwaii.

North Pacific seaplanes were bought out earlier in 2013 by Inland Air Charters which is based in Prince Rupert and depart from Seal Cove.

They currently fly to Masset, 5 days a week (Mon-Fri), however their schedule may increase to 7 days in summer. Usually the planes leave Rupert at 8.30am arriving in Masset by 9.15am (45 min flight). Then depart Masset at 9.30am and return to Rupert. There are no planes based in Masset, so if a flight doesn’t leave Rupert then there will be no departure from here. Currently there is an afternoon flight on Monday and Fridays, departing Masset around 2.30pm.

The above are the scheduled flights, however in summer there are often many chartered flights, which may have seats available. You would need to discuss this availability with Inland Air direct.

One-way flights are around $200 + tax.

The ferry leaves Prince Rupert and arrives at Skidegate Landing. Schedules change, so please contact BC Ferries to make your booking.

On Island Transportation

I recommend that guests hire a car whilst visiting the islands. There is no public transit and some popular sites around Masset including North Beach and Tow hill are located 25km from town. That’s a long walk.
