Dixon Entrance is a strait between Haida Gwaii on the north coast of British Columbia and Prince of Wales and Dall islands in Alaska. About 65 km wide, Dixon Entrance connects the Pacific Ocean with Hecate Strait and the inside coastal passages. It was named for George Dixon, whose exploration of the BC coast in the 1780s helped to initiate the maritime fur trade.
