New Eddystone Rock, Misty Fjords

This distinctive 280-foot pillar of basalt came from fractures in the floor of Behm Canal, indicating it was part of a volcanic vent over the last 5 million years. It stands at the entrance to Rudyerd Bay, one of the most scenic waterways in the Misty Fjords area. As a prominent landmark, the rock is cited in many historical references, including that of Captain Vancouver, who named the rock after England’s Eddystone Lighthouse.
