Description & Services

Carter Island is situated about 0.4 miles north of Cranberry Island in the approach to Lockeport Inner Harbour.  
A light is shown at an elevation of 49 feet from a white circular tower 30 feet high, with two red bands on Carter Island. 
The original light was built in 1875 and replaced in 1930 and then again in 1989 by the present fiberglass lighthouse.
