Cape Bonavista Lighthouse
At the tip of the Bonavista Peninsula, 3 1/2 hours from St.
John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Imagine... you're bobbing up and down in a dark sea - a light
shining 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 and see the
same seal oil fueled catoptric light apparatus that was used in the
1800s. Experience a light keeper's day in 1870 - a 24-7 job of
polishing glass, filling oil lamps, recording weather patterns and
watching the waves from one of the most rugged points in
A great destination to watch for whales, icebergs and puffins in
