Active Pass Lighthouse

A distinctive sight from the BC Ferries route between Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen, the Active Pass Lighthouse is located on Mayne Island in the Gulf Islands.  The original lighthouse was built in 1885 but has undergone several changes and the current lighthouse tower was built in 1969 and automated in 1997.  Today the site is open to the public and is a popular day trip destination.
