“Bald Eagle bonanza”

Active Pass Lighthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We timed our visit just right to see many Bald Eagles, both mature and immature, diving for herring in the Active Pass. We also saw Sea Lions cruising by. Alas, no Orca, but lots of Pileated Woodpeckers and Northern Flickers hammering away.

We bought some provisions at the Tru-value store, some wine at the Trading Post, and came here for a picnic. The weather was fine and we stayed for the afternoon.

I have passed this place on the ferry not much more than 500 times and have always enjoyed seeing the lighthouse from that perspective. Turn about, the ferries preparing to transit Active Pass are awesome! Plus there are buckets of sea birds to watch and many, many seals. This is just one of the wonderful sights in a visit to lovely Mayne Island. It's not the easiest to get to, but it's well worth the trouble.

magical place, seen many Orca's swimming by. My dog also had a blast burning around trying to catch the birds. Great place for a picnic or just walking along the rocks.

Amazing view!! Great place to spend some time inhaling the fresh sea air and beautiful views as you watch the sailboats, ferries & yachts sail through the active pass. It's just stunning! Great place to take some amazing pictures. We cycled there from the Mayne Island Resort.

Lovely to see this old lighthouse as well as the nearby beach area. It is difficult to access the beach area but well worth it.
