Portlock Point Lighthouse

This small lighthouse sits on the eastern end of Prevost Island, one of the Southern Gulf Islands, and overlooks the BC Ferries passing through on their Tsawwassen - Swartz Bay Route.  The original lighthouse was built in the 1890's but the current one is from 1987, although Portlock Point has been fully automated and de-staffed since 1964.  Portlock Point, along with Richardson Bay, are part of the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve of Canada and are owned and operated by Parks Canada.
