We stop by the center several times each trip to Haida Gwaii. The staff is friendly and helpful. There's a nice selection of souvenirs, and the waterfront view is scenic.

This travel centre is a destination in itself. Beautiful gift shop, a deck looking over the harbour, little paths with botanical interpretive signage, picnic tables and a strange, lovely whale sculpture. One of the two young staff was extremely well-informed and the other one a...More
