Thanks for visiting our website. We would like to hear from you.
Fantastic ! If you need information and picture about Portofino Lighthouse write me
I enjoyed visiting your website. Having spent 2 years at RRMC in Victoria and 3 years living in Chilliwack, I have a special place in my heart for B.C. & her lighthouses.
What a wonderful site!

Am half-Canadian; from Seattle, WA. Love all lighthouses. Those in BC are awesome!!!
Flew helicopters for the Coast Guard, helped
I've never been to British Columbia, but your site makes me want to.
I lived on lighthouses from the age of 12 until I left home at 18. After moving to Calgary, a girl I worked with asked me what my dad did for a living. When I told her he was a lighthouse keeper, she thought he cleaned houses - I had to explain to this girl from Saskatchewan what a lighthouse was. Imagine my dad's surprise when I told him he was mistaken for a light housekeeper!
Donna Gray, if you would like info on local Lightstations you can e-mail me direct. I tried e-mailing on the return path left on Rons site but the mail was returned as address not known. Cheers Ron.
My Father is planning a trip to Vancouver in September. He is trying to find out information about all lighthouses in your area. Could you please email me and let me know how to get this information and i will let him know. Thank you, Donna Gray
Just got back from the Cape Scott Lighthouse.

I have some info regarding Lawyer lighthouse.
I am a former Lighthouse Brat( 14 years), wonderful web site, but you are missing pics of my first home, Porlier Pass Lighthouse. Thanks for the memories!
I love your web site!!!
I presume the continuing saga of estevan point is still going on, but one happy hour in the wardroom at Dockyard, esquimalt, the subject of the estevan sub incident came up. Story was that the shell in the museum(maritime) was just a american casing with japanese letting on it and that it was an american sub that thumped a few out, to get flagging canadian war bonds moving and also get the quebecers in the www2 fray. I assume that is all old hat.
Cool site, I really enjoy looking and reading about lighthouse. Good pictures.
Absolutely taken in by your page. Was introduced to lighthouses starting with Fisgard. I now find myself reading and researching every bit of information I can get my hands on. This was a great tool. Thanks ever so much.

Wow, April I'm impressed! Your web site is very nice. It must have taken you several days and lots of editing. I can appreciate all of the work you have done, and the knowledge you have shared with all of your visitors. I give you a A+.
I have recently started collecting lighthouse memorabilia and have really enjoyed the website and comments. To me the lighthouse is a symbol of hope, endurance and strength and that someone somewhere will leave a light on for you. Keep your light shining bright.
Great site! Will try to send you Pictures of Egg Island!

Would love to find a lighthouse screensaver.
Have several slides of BC lighthouses taken from Alaska Ferry in 1986. Would appreciate assistance in identification, My guess is Lucy Island, and Bonilla Island, from looking at Donald Graham's book of Lights of the Inside Passage.
In 1997 a friend and I drove for Brookings, OR to Vancouver and then took a ferry to Victoria. While in the area we visited the lights in the area. Although we didn't get to go in I was able to get some great pictures.
I will be in Vancouver January 23-27,1999. Can anyone tell me which lighthouses I should see while I'm there?
I enjoyed this site. My mother and her family (the Wallaces) were raised on the lighthouses of the B.C. coast for 16 years. She still talks of the good memories of living on them.

My husband and I were keepers on Green Island, McInnes Island, Pine Island, and Bonilla Island. Loved it! This is a good website, and I enjoyed visiting it.
My wife and I have had and continue to have the privilege of cruising the north central coast of BC. During these visits we look forward to the sighting of each lighthouse. They have become points of familiarity and comfort during our travels. Seeing places such as Dryad and Boat Bluff on your website bring back many fond memories. Thank you.
Can you send me info on lighthouses please.
I was so happy to have found this page. The photos are wonderful. If any of you have any stories or experiences with lighthouses, please e-mail me. I would like to share these with my father who loves lighthouses.
hello to all and thank you for the pictures

enjoyed the pictures,
I enjoy visiting your site regularly and have recommended it to my brothers and some friends. I've learned a lot about the lighthouses from this site and by following the different links. Still awaiting word on my own lightkeeper application. Keeping my fingers crossed. I wish you all the best at Addenbroke Light Station. Regards.

Outstanding website! My love for lighthouses started when I was stationed in San Diego, Cal. I spent many evenings watching the sun set from Point Loma light. I had no idea how many of your lights are stilled manned. Where does one apply for those positions? Hope to make it to BC in the next few years and your costal lights will be my main interest. Again, great job on this web page and keep the flame burning.
What a super site. I hope that it will have some effectai changing the minds of the government in their program of de-staffing. We desperately need the lightkeepers all along our coasts.
Hello neighbour, you have a wonderful site, it is so complete and I must show Judy. Keep the light lit! Bruce
SO what do you lighthouse people call each other? Is it lighter? I think I noticed the word in one of your emails.
My love of lighthouses first started on our RV trip up the CA., Oregon,& WA. coast. I did get to see so many beautiful lighthouses.
Hello, I am so pleased to find that someone has taken the time and opportunity to create this wonderful site. I have loved lighthouses since I was a small child. I am from the east coast and spent lots of time on the beaches with my family. Lighthouses have always been a symbol of tranquility and protection. Keep up the good work
