  • You will spot it from the highway just after Forteau and it will look too far away to visit. This would be your big mistake. It is located just 3 km off the highway on a good gravel road. What a spot ...  more »

  • This 1850’s lighthouse, easily seen from the highway, is accessible from a dirt road off the highway. Its claim to fame is its height. At 33 meters it is the tallest in the province. Visitors can clim...  more »
  • This is the tallest lighthouse in the Atlantic provinces and my favourite to visit. It’s wonderfully maintained with a great exhibit to provide visitors a thorough outlook on the lives of lighthouse keepers and their families. The tour includes a tour to the top of the tower where you could look out to the surrounding area in the light section. The restoration and maintenance was impeccable with little tidbits of information as you ascended the tower. The guide we had gave us lots of valuable insight into the lighthouse, some geology and the lifestyle of the surrounding people—it was great. The exhibit was well-done and the replica of the tower was really well done to help visitors understand the solid construction of the lighthouse and the “unseen” portions like the 6ft thick walls of the tower. Note that the bathroom is in a separate building but there is one on site. There is a small giftshop but we didn’t check it out. The walking trails surrounding are worth checking out if you have time. This is the one spot we could spot whales and dolphins from shore which was great. We returned to this site multiple times because we liked it so much.
  • Well worth the short drive off the main highway. The lighthouse interpretation center is very well done. The guides are informative and helpful. The museum and good shop are well done.
  • Whales! Nice heated gift shop. Nice little museum but the main attraction is stand outside to the right of the lighthouse and look for whales. We saw numerous minke and at least one humpback. Very close and absolutely wonderful
  • The tour through the interpretation centre was excellent; the guide was knowledgable and the content was very interesting. Don't miss this stop if you are in the area!
  • Cold but breath taking view
