History:
Deer Island Point Light sits at the southern point of Deer Island in the campground of Deer Island Point Park. The small lighthouse overlooks the Old Sow Whirlpool, which is the largest whirlpool in the western hemisphere. The whirlpool is at its peak during the new and full moons and can be seen three hours prior to high tide.

Personal Note:
The southern end of Deer Island is also where you can get a ferry back to Campobello Island. As we approached the campground my wife noted that there wasn't much time before the ferry left. I said I'd be quick. We saw the light tower (can't really called it a light"house"). It was rather disappointing. I snapped some photos, got back in the car, and... well... we missed the ferry. We had to wait another hour for the next ferry. Deer Point light wasn't worth missing the ferry. Oh well.
