Meet Andrew Merilees

Andrew Merilees is the owner of Haida Gwaii Discovery Tours

Andrew Merilees grew up on Vancouver Island, and might have gone back after attending university in Prince George if not for meeting a Haida Gwaii girl. Instead, he ended up making his home here, where he has been for more than 15 years.

Andrew’s father, who still lives on Vancouver Island, used to lead tour groups (he called them “field trips”) to Haida Gwaii for more than a decade. When he stopped, acquaintances of his father who knew that Andrew lived on Haida Gwaii would call him to ask for insider information or to take them to the places of local interest that aren’t necessarily advertised in the tourist brochures. Pretty soon Andrew realized he had a tourism business, and in 2002 he officially launched Haida Gwaii Discovery Tours.

Andrew always gets a thrill out of showing visitors all of the natural wonders that make Haida Gwaii special. Andrew, who also happens to be the mayor of the Village of Masset, has always been adamant that Masset “has everything you need and nothing you don’t! There’s so much to enjoy here. We are perfectly positioned for all kinds of natural activities… hunting, gathering, fishing, beachcombing”, says Andrew. “There is a lot of opportunity on the islands.”

Informative. Interesting. Fun.
