Rainbow Island is a small island as the east end of Seaforth Channel near Shearwater and Bella Bella. It is a useful first/last campsite when accessing the area with BC Ferries.

There is a steep shingle beach and small spit on the N side of the island with a grassy area above with plenty of good flat sites for camping (52 10.7' N, 128 4.5' W, from SPOT GPS on the beach). This area should be protected at all tides levels.

There is no fresh water on the island. There is no outhouse. Also see page 136 of Wild Coast 2.
