The Springwater has an amazing deck overlooking Active Pass where diners can watch ferries pass, spectacular sunsets, and wildlife such as otters, seabirds, and sometimes even orcas.
The Springwater was established in 1892 and began hosting lodgers in 1895; it is said to be the oldest continuously operating hotel/bar in British Columbia.
In the early 1900s, Canadian Pacific Railway Ferries would stop at Miners Bay, next to the Springwater, while traveling between Victoria and up north to the Fraser River and Caribou gold rushes.
It has continued to grow and develop over the years into the Springwater known today, featuring a restaurant, pub, and waterfront cabins.
