 Deer Island Point, NB    
Lighthouse accessible by car and a short, easy walk.
Description: This modern light doesn't merit inclusion on an official lighthouse list, as it never had a keeper or an enclosed lantern room, but if you are on Deer Island, you might as well stop by for a close-up view of the tower. Just offshore from the light is the Old Sow, the largest tidal whirlpool in the western hemisphere. The best time to see, and maybe even hear, the whirlpool is about three hours before high tide.

Known officially as Deer Point Light, the tower stands 6.1 metres (20 feet) tall and displays a two-second red flash every twelve seconds.

Location: Located on the southern tip of Deer Island.
Latitude: 44.925389
Longitude: -66.984833

Travel Instructions: The light is located in Deer Island Point Park, just south of the landing for the ferries that connect Deer Island to Eastport and Campobello Island during the summer months. The government of New Brunswick operates a ferry that provides a year-round link to the northern tip of Deer Island from Letete.

The lighthouse is owned by the Canadian Coast Guard. Grounds open, tower closed.
