Description

Smith Shoal, about 4.5 miles N of the N entrance to Northwest Channel, is covered 11 feet and marked on its NE end by Smith Shoal Light (24°43'06"N., 81°55'18"W.).
The light also marks the N approach to the channel and is shown 54 feet above the water from a small black house on a white, hexagonal, pyramidal skeleton tower on piles.
A relatively flat-topped coral head, covered by a least depth of 11 feet, is about 3.3 miles WSW of the light.
