Frequently Asked Questions
BC Ferries operates an inter-island ferry, the Kwuna. It travels between Alliford Bay and Skidegate Landing on a near hourly schedule between 7:00 AM and 10:30 PM. Some additional sailings are available in the evenings. Click here for the seasonal schedule. Reservations are not accepted as this is a first come first serve service.
There is no public transport available on Haida Gwaii. Our communities are at a distance from each other which typically require a rental or personal vehicle to navigate, ex.:
- Daajing Giids to Sandspit- 14km + 25 minute ferry ride
- Daajing Giids to Skidegate- 7km
- Daajing Giids to Tlell – 47 km
- Daajing Gids to Port Clements – 68 km
- Daajing Giids to Masset- 108 km
- Daajing Giids to Old Massett 112 km
- Daajing Giids to Taw Tldaaw/Tow Hill – 138km
It is strongly recommended to book ahead if you require a rental vehicle as they are in limited supply on Haida Gwaii. The Airport Shuttle and Taxi services also require advance booking. There is only one taxi company on South Graham, and taxi services are not available between Daajing Giids and Masset.
