 Pointe Brideau Range Rear, NB    
Lighthouse accessible by car and a short, easy walk.
Description: A set of skeletal range lights was established at Pointe Brideau in 1978. Several years later, the Town of Caraquet developed their beach area around the rear range tower. Unimpressed with the Coast Guard's skeletal rear range tower, the town received permission to construct a "wrapper" around the tower. The resulting lighthouse, built in 1991, is an accurate representation of historic range towers built under the Department of Marine.

The town's work to improve a Coast Guard tower is similar to what was done at Campbellton in 1985, only the tower in Caraquet is a more accurate representation of a Canadian lighthouse. The Town of Caraquet is responsible for the maintenance of the wooden shell, while the Coast Guard looks after the navigational aid inside.

Location: Located on Caraquet Bay behind the Place Caraquet shopping center in Caraquet.
Latitude: 47.795067
