    Cole Island National Historic Site


    Cole Island is a provincial and a national historic site located in Esquimalt Harbour. In 1860, the Royal Navy began construction of a munitions depot on Cole Island. Eventually, 16 solid structures were used to store and recondition highly explosive munitions during the Crimean war and throughout World War One. Five buildings remain. The beautiful island is open to the public during daylight hours, and many kayakers and other boaters stop there to take the self-guided tour.
