Horton Bay Anchorage

Horton Bay.  The public wharf is a Canpass/Nexus-only customs reporting station and has room for up to 320 feet of moorage.  Entering the area between Mayne and Samuel Islands requires some care but is completely navigable.

From the Gulf Islands side, the best route is through Georgeson Passage, east of Lizard Island.  Be careful of a kelp-covered rock in less than 6 feet, fairly close to Mayne Island.  If entering west of Lizard Island, the rock is in the middle of your path into Horton Bay.   A reef extends from Curlew Island into Robson Passage, which separates Curlew Island from Mayne Island.  use Plans Chart 3477 (large scale, much recommended) or 3442.   A study of Chart 3477 shows a mid-channel course is called for.  The bay is filled with crab pots and private mooring buoys in the best part of the bay.  We have received reports of current running through the bay.
