A BC Ferry passes through Active Pass...

Two very different vessels pass through Active Pass between Mayne Island and Galiano Island of the southern Gulf Islands.

One is a BC ferry on its way from Victoria to the mainland. The other is a super-yacht on its way to Victoria for the Northwest Deuce Days weekend. (I know because I saw it docked at Victoria's inner harbour the next day.)

The tidal currents through Active Pass can be formidable to the point where they can almost stop a transiting vessel in its tracks.
