The Bois Blanc Island Lighthouse is not open to the public and has no hours of operation. The lighthouse may be viewed from the Amherstburg, Ontario shore of the Detroit River.

On the shores of Lake Erie, the Bois Blanc Lighthouse, a classic limestone tower, guided sailors for more than a century. A walk around the site gives visitors a chance to imagine what life there must have been like for the light keepers who stood watch.
