Chrome Island is the site of a light station in the Salish Sea/Georgia Strait on the coast of Vancouver Island in an area known as Baynes Sound. Chrome Island is located 100 metres (330 ft) off the southeast tip of Denman Island and 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) southeast of the harbour at Deep Bay, British Columbia.

The Island was known as Yellow Rock until 1940, when the name changed to prevent confusion with a similarly named island.[1] Archaeological studies have explored evidence of pre-contact human use including petroglyphs, human bones and a midden of discarded shells.
