Kendrick Inlet Light

Kendrick Inlet Light (Photo from the Captain Alec Provan collection. )
Kendrick Inlet Light (List of Lights 102) is a mast on a rock.
Kendrick Inlet is located East of Nootka Island, West of Strange Island. It was named (in 1862 by Captain Richards RN) for Captain John Kendrick who commanded a small trading fleet that sailed from Boston to the west coast in 1787. His fleet consisted of the Columbia, and the Washington. The unfortunate Captain Kendrick was later killed in 1793 at Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii by a ball accidentally fired from a British vessel while saluting him.
