Chatham Point Light Station, Inside Passage, British Columbia

The Chatham Point Light Station is located at the north end of Discovery Passage approximately 40 kilometres (25 miles) north from Campbell River, B.C.  It is where Discovery Passage makes a sharp turn into Johnstone Strait.  The station serves as a light station and a weather station and is staffed as of June 2015.  The light itself is a white and green cylindrical steel tower on a concrete base and sits in the water off of the shore in front of the station. The station was originally established at this point in 1908.  Photos (a bit distant) taken in June 2015.

  1. These pictures make me miss the cliff we lived on....When you are up against the ocean, there is no road or pole or wire between you and the water, and you can smell the earth and the trees as well as the know you are alive for sure.
