Free Photos of Lighthouses and Other Aids to Navigation

Pictures of lighthouses and other navigation aids such as the harbor buoys, lights, bell buoys, navigational cans and light towers are listed below and available for downloading. We also have a section on recommended books.

Aids to navigation have been around as long as sailors have ventured upon the Oceans. Even today, as sophisticated electronic navigation systems seem to make visual methods somewhat obsolete, the older methods of providing visual reference points are still essential. While somewhat less important for giving notice of dangerous rocks and shoals, they still provide a sense of reassurance that the instruments are performing properly and that if a malfunction occurs, all will not be lost. Each light house or buoy has a distinctive pattern of lights, or sounds, or bell tones, or patterns or numbers, that assist a navigator in determining his or her position.
