Just uptown of Gaw Tlagee Old Massett you will find the relatively young community of Masset, which traces its name to a similar origin as Old Massett. Registered in 1907, Masset’s roots lie primarily in fishing, logging and the military. The Dixon Entrance Maritime Museum will open a window into Masset’s maritime roots. All kinds of vessels arrive and depart from Masset Harbour, including local fishing charters.You will find a visitor centre, hardware, electronics, groceries, adventure-gear, marine sports equipment, credit union, gas station, repair-shop, restaurants, hotels, library, post office, coffee shop and B&B’s. Masset Airport is a quick five-minute drive north.Right behind Masset is Dal Kaahlii Delkatla Wildlife Sanctuary. You can encircle its leisurely 5.6-kilometre trail and roadway in about 45 minutes. Depending on the season and the day, you may be in for some incredible bird watching. Dal Kaahlii offers you the chance to see some rarer species and perhaps even catch some once-in-a-lifetime phenomena.
