East Brother Island Light Station, replay and audio files



Mike and Gena at East Brother Light Station Victorian Bed and BreakfastEast Brother Light Station is a place that has long been on my bucket list to visit. It is a bed and breakfast at a Lighthouse in the San Pablo Bay. It is unique because you are somewhat remote and yet surrounded beyond the water by the San Francisco Bay Area. You access it by boat from Point Richmond, an unlikely place for a high end B&B. East Brother Island description Audio file.

The GPS replay file takes you from the island to shore and then along the dirt road that connects with the paved portion of Western Drive in Richmond.  To get the most out of the replay and to hear an audio clip including the 125 DB fog horn associated with the East Brother POI I created, download the latest USA User POI file.

I was monitoring the speed of the boat and saw that it peaked around 17 MPH.


I asked Captain Richard how fast we were going and he thought around 12 MPH. Captain Richard audio file.
When I told him I was tracking with my
GPS, he said the difference would be because of the strong current.

There isn't much else in that area other than a yacht club, a military radar station and some old ship relics.
