The town of Shippigan is to be commended for preserving this structure. It's a right on the waterfront near the aquarium If you've visiting the aquarium anyway, take a little time to look over this very traditional East Coast timber lighthouse!

Well situated close to the aquarium. You can admire the port. It has a gentleman who can tell all the stories of the the Acadian and the paraphernalia which they use. If you like to listen, he is the reference.

Neat history surrounding the lighthouse. It was originally from Burnt Church Area and moved up here and restored later on. Cool photo opportunities surround the lighthouse and it is in the same parking lot as the aquarium and restaurant. It is located on the boardwalk.

A beautiful, natural spot don't miss a walk down the boardwalk. After your walk visit the aquarium. Well worth it.

The marine museum and boardwalk are what make this really worth the visit. I especially liked the boardwalk. The exercise was good and it's free!

Soccer weekend in Tracadie-Sheila and drove to Shippigan to see Aquarium and lighthouse. Neat write up on the lighthouse and aquarium was cool too.

Get someone you know to take you to the town of Shippagan, and go Lobster fishing from there. It's an amazing trip. And you will remember it for all your life. I don't think there are tour there, but maybe a friend can set you...More
