Georgina Point Lighthouse, Mayne Island, British Columbia

The Georgina Point Lighthouse (also known as the Active Pass Lighthouse) sits at the Northern tip of Mayne Island on Georgia Strait at the entrance to Active Pass, a channel between Mayne and Galiano Island (a main ferry route from the Vancouver Area to the Victoria Area). The original light station was established in 1885, however the current light was built in 1940. The lighthouse was decomissioned in 1969. It is currently on part of the Parks Canada Gulf Islands National Park Reserve.
