Canada's Only Confederation Lighthouse
While on site, take the opportunity to tour the East Point Lighthouse; Canada’s Confederation Lighthouse – built in 1867. You will get a bird’s eye view of the meeting tides, seals and numerous sea birds. The tours can be either guided or self-directed, the choice is yours and the price is the same.
"Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining."
