Framed by a stunning stretch of old-growth Douglas Fir trees, the craggy bluffs of the Helliwell Provincial Park look over the Strait of Georgia, and establish the northern entrance to Tribune Bay. Explore the rugged beauty that British Columbia has to offer as you walk along nature trails that loop the bluffs at St John's Point. Along the way, native Garry Oak trees keep you company. If you're here in the spring months of April and May, you will be rewarded with an enchanting view of wildflowers that bloom along the hillside. Intrepid explorers can dive off the coast and head to the Flora Islet, which now forms part of the park bounds, to view the rare, deep-sea mammal - the sixgill shark.
Towering 16 meters (55 feet) above the ground, Chrome Island Lighthouse then only had a white shelter at the base, atop which was a red lantern. The fixed light that flashed from the lantern could cover an area of more than 24 kilometers (15 miles) when the sea was calm. Over the years that followed, the tower was refurbished from time to time, a new light was fixed inside the lantern and the dwelling area was replaced by a fiberglass structure. This lighthouse and its keepers have come to the rescue of many distressed travelers and its remarkable history makes it a must-visit when in the region.
