Located just 25 km from the Wood Islands Ferry, Cape Bear Lighthouse stands on Prince Edward Island’s Southeast coast.

Established in 1881, it is still in operation today, with a light visible for up to 22 km (14 miles) and an amazing view of the Northumberland Strait and Nova Scotia.

Climb to the lantern room to view the panoramic vista of cliffs, beaches, fishing boats, and marine life. Learn about Cape Bear Marconi Station’s unique connection to the RMS Titanic disaster,  and view displays depicting the past life of the Cape Bear area.

Visit the Signal Shop for crafts made by local artisans, and bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the picnic tables on site.
