Active Active Pass

Possibly my favourite camp site on the southern Gulf Islands is on Mayne Island. I try to stay at the 'honeymoon' site that is on the periphery of the grounds overlooking Active Pass.

Active Pass separates Mayne Island from Galiano Island. Twice an hour, a BC ferry passes through as they travel between Vancouver Island and the mainland. Other traffic routinely includes smaller ferries traveling between the islands, floatplanes, pleasure craft and -- if you are lucky enough to see them -- the occasional pod of orcas.
