Stuart Island has two prominent hills near the middle, 640 feet high. Turn Point is the W extremity of Stuart Island. It is bold, steep-to, and marked by Turn Point Light (48°41’20″N., 123°14’15″W.), 44 feet high on a 16-foot white concrete tower.
Reid Harbor indents the SE shore of Stuart Island and trends NW about 1.5 miles. The harbor, which is landlocked and 400 yards wide, affords good anchorage in 4 to 5 fathoms, soft bottom. The harbor is free of danger, but from the E entrance point foul ground extends about halfway across the entrance. Enter in midchannel. In 1996, a visible wreck was reported in the harbor entrance in about 48°40’12″N., 123°11’19″W.
Prevost Harbor, on the N shore of Stuart Island about 1.5 miles E of Turn Point, affords good shelter and anchorage.
