Lighthouses in the San Francisco Bay Area:
Point Bonita Lighthouse,
Images of Point Bonita Lighthouse available at www.sfbayimages.com
The Point Bonita Lighthouse was built in 1855 to mark the entrance of the San Francisco Bay for Sailors coming from the South.
The Lighthouse is currently maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard today as a navigational aid to assist captains
and sailors safely through the tricky and sometimes dangerous waters at the mouth of the Bay. Modern navigation charts illustrate lighthouses with a number next to
them indicating their unique pattern of fog horn blasts and light patterns. The Point Bonita Lighthouse sends out two sound blasts
in heavy fog every 30 seconds. Sir Francis Drake, in his original exploration of the Northern California coast, missed the
San Francisco Bay because of heavy fog. Fog makes sound travel further, and the denser the fog, the further it travels. The foghorns are a distinguishing sound guiding safe passage
for ships before GPS and Radar.
