Cape d’Or Lighthouse

Cape D'Or Banner


Description:
Cape d’Or is located at the end of the world with dramatic cliffs dropping down into the Bay of Fundy. This is a photographer’s paradise. Spend the night in the guest house, enjoy a meal at the restaurant, or simply take in the rugged beauty. If you time things right, you can take in the spectacle of the Dory Riptides (the only place in the world where three tides converge to form extremely turbulent waters). There are several hiking trails to explore. Keep your eyes open for both bird and marine wildlife.
Open mid May- mid October

History:
A foghorn was placed here in 1875 to warn fishermen of the dory rips. The first lighthouse was built in 1922 and replaced by the current lighthouse in 1965. It has been fully automated since 1989.
