Merry Island Lighthouse, Merry Island, British Columbia

The Merry Island Lighthouse is located on Merry Island in the Straight of Georgia off the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. The island sits just Southeast of Thormanby Island at the entrance to Welcome Pass. The station was established at Merry Island in 1903 and the current lighthouse was constructed in 1966. The lighthouse is staffed and is operated by the Canadian Coast Guard. Many thanks to my friends Glen and Marcia for their hospitatlity and running me out to the lighthouse in their boat.
