Cape Bonavista Lighthouse Provincial Historic Site


Imagine... you're bobbing up and down on a dark sea and a light across the water is your only connection to land. Built in 1843, the light at Cape Bonavista is one of the few in the world where you can still climb up the stone tower to see the same seal oil fueled light used in the 19th century. A great spot for seeing whales, icebergs, and puffins!
