Chantry Island Lighthouse Tour


If you want to see some beautiful lake views on a clear day, you should head to the chantry island lighthouse! It is located on Lake Huron, over a mile southwest of the Saugeen River mouth in Southampton.

This lighthouse has much history and was built in the mid-1800s. The island has stones above and beneath the water, going a mile north and south of the island. As a result, these boulders make this a very dangerous place on the Great Lake and one where lots of shipwrecks take place. Since it is an island, the size of the land depends on the water levels surrounding it. You can tour this lighthouse and the Light Keeper’s Cottage while climbing up 106 steps to the top of the lighthouse to see the stunning views of Lake Huron.

If you’re a bird enthusiast, this island might be perfect for you! It is a Federal Migratory Bird Sanctuary with approximately 50,000 birds on the island during the breeding season. Please bring along your kids and enjoy the beautiful island and all that it has to offer!
