Cape Mudge Lighthouse, Quadra Island, B.C.

The Cape Mudge Lighthouse is located at the south end of Quadra Island, British Columbia, overlooking the entrance to Discovery Passage. It was established here in 1898 and the station is still staffed by the Canadian Coast Guard. It is directly across the channel from Campbell River on Vancouver Island and cruise ships bound for Alaska pass frequently during the summer months. Photos taken in July 2009.


  1. The first keeper was John Davidson from Hopeman Scotland, his great grand niece visited Quadra on the 16th September 2009 exactly 111 years , to the day, after John began his term there.

    This was a coincidence, unplanned and a bit creepy!!

  2. The waters were safer with a keeper there.
