Harmony Falls
   British Columbia, Canada

This waterfall has been confirmed by the World Waterfall Database, has been mapped and its height has been approximated but exact measurements have not yet been confirmed.
Harmony Falls is a lofty coastal waterfall found in Hotham Sound in British Columbia's Sunshine Coast. The falls drop just over 1,450 feet out of Friel Lake, ending almost directly in the waters of the ocean. Friel Lake occupies a low elevation plateau on a peninsula dividing Hotham Sound and Jervis Inlet and because of its low elevation doesn't frequently receive heavy snowfall. As a result, Friel Lake is largely dependent on rainfall and only produces a flow at its outlet during the wet season, resulting in Harmony Falls running dry by mid-Summer in most years (earlier in low precipitation winters).
Seasonal Discharge
This waterfall occurs along a stream that is known to vary greatly in volume and as a result may not flow consistently year round or may dry out completely during certain periods.


  • Also Known as: Friel Falls, Friel Lake Falls
  • Harmony Falls is the Official name of this waterfall

The falls were named for the nearby Harmony Islands, but are frequently cited as Friel Lake Falls after its source.

Location and directions

Since Harmony Falls flow almost directly into the ocean the only way to see the falls is either by boat or from the air. The falls are distantly visible from the Earl's Cove - Saltery Bay Ferry, but can only be approached closely via a personal craft.
