Pointe Bonaventure Lighthouse, Bonaventure, Quebec

The Pointe Bonaventure Lighthouse sits on the West side of the Bonaventure River where it empties into Chaleur Bay in the South part of the Gaspe Peninsula. It is just East of the Town of Bonaventure, Quebec. The light, which dates to 1902 was originally at Pointe Échouerie and then moved to Pointe Bonaventure in 1907. The light was relocated to its current location in 2005. The light has been inactive since 1998 and is currently on the private property of a campground alongside the river, although access to the site is open. the light is a 7 1/2 metre tall wooden tower with gallery. Photos were taken in October 2017.

  1. Hi Neal. You Lighthouse blog is an inspiration. I lived near this lighthouse at it's former location. It was moved to the site in the 1990's. I have toured the Gaspe last yr and currently blogging my adventure on "The Lighthouses Of Gaspe". It must have been a great adventure travelling the world, seeking out all these great lighthouses.
