Cape Lambert

This rocky headland marks the approximate half way point between Queen Charlotte and Pelorus Sound. An area of foul grounds extends from the end of the Cape. The only dangers to cruising boats however, are the kelp and the isolated sunken rock of the northern end of the Cape.


A rocky islet about 3 m high is situated 30 m out from the north-east end of the Cape. Passage inside this islet is not recommended.

Local knowledge
Sea condition can be quite violent in wind or swell against tide in this area as well. Caution needs to be shown in moderate to heavy wind and sea.
