Race Rocks Lighthouse

Located appoximately one nautical mile from Rocky Point, the southern most tip of Vancouver Island, Race Rocks is the most southerly part of Canada on the Pacific Coast.

Since 1860 the lighthouse at Race Rocks has shone, without interruption. For many years it was manned by a succession of dedicated lightkeepers, who tended the light as a vital aid to navigation for ships transiting the Strait of Juan de Fuca, bound for the ports of Victoria, Vancouver, Seattle and the inside passage.

The lighthouse was eventually automated in 1997.
