The lighthouse at Georgina Point, Mayne Island

Georgina Point Lighthouse was built in 1885 to warn ships of the reefs and rough waters and currents of Active Pass. The park is open daily to the public. This historic lighthouse, now de-staffed, and the headland it perches on, have always been popular spots for picnics, watching the boating traffic churning through Active Pass, and exploring the headland.

If you are fortunate you may see orcas working their way through Active Pass.
