About Cape Bonavista Lighthouse

The Cape Bonavista Lighthouse is a Provincial Historic Museum and you'll get to experience what a light keeper's day was like in the 1970s! Experience the 24/7 job of polishing glass, filling oil lamps and watching the waves at the most ruggest points in Newfoundland. 

The lighthouse was the only light at Cape Bonavista and is one of the few in the world where you can still climb up the stone tower and still see the same seal oil fueled light that was used in the 1800s. The lighthouse is one of the most photographed placed in the area with its prime location of being able to see whales, icebergs and puffins. There's also some period toys, games and costumes to try on whilst you visit too! 

Next to the lighouse you'll find the interpretation centre which features exhibits on lighthouse technology and the lightkeepers lives themselves. Join the interpreter for a guided tour or head out on your own, they'll always be on hand to answer any questions you may have! Climb right to the top and watch puffins from the colony and don't forget to snap a photo too!
