Pointer Island Lightstation

Thanks for your questions.
The lighthouse was on Pointer Island for nearly 100 years, but the houses and out buildings have all been cleared. All that remains today is a helicopter pad and a white, automated tower. From what I can tell, even the fog horns have been removed. Please click on the "Pointer Island - 1993" link to see a modern day photo of the lighthouse.
As for your second question, Pointer Island is about 200 miles north of the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Click on "Lighthouses of British Columbia" to view a map. If you scroll down, you will find Pointer Island located under "Automated" and a line and dot indicating its location.
