Chrome Island lighthouse

Chrome Island lighthouse is a light station established in 1891 that assists traffic in the region of Deep Bay, British Columbia, Denman Island, and Hornby Island. It is currently a manned station, though in recent years the Canadian Coast Guard has considered converting it to fully automated status.

Along with electronic navigational aids, the five-second flash lighthouse is approximately 21 metres (69 ft) above water level (depending on tides). The station has a helicopter landing deck and rescue boat.
