Ferry to Mayne Island: Mayne Island, BC
Century old buildings, spectacular views of Active Pass, some of the best Northwest Country Inns, Bed and Breakfast lodgings and camp sites contribute to make this 21 kilometer square island a favorite for those looking for an escape from city life.
A trip to the museum will reveal that Mayne has not always been a quiet paradise.
In 1858, the Island was the stopping point for miners headed to the mainland during the gold rush.
The Museum, empty saloons and hotels in Miners Bay give evidence of a busier time in Mayne's history.
Today it is the August Fall Fair (oldest fair on the Gulf Islands), that is becoming an increasingly popular draw.
Booking accommodations before arrival is recommended.
