Established in 1964 to replace the Prince Shoal Lightship,
Haut-Fond Prince Light guides mariners through one of the most dangerous shoals
in the Saint Lawrence River, near Tadoussac, Quebec at the mouth of the Saguenay River.
In 1968, the 83-foot tall tower with red and white horizontal stripes was built
on top of the circular Keeper's dwelling on a caisson-style base.
The light produces a white flash every 2.5 seconds with a range of 18 nautical miles.
In 2002, the Canadian Coast Guard contracted repairs to the architectural
and structural components of the upper pillar as well as the concrete slab
used as a helicopter pad.
In addition, repairs to the cylindrical outside wall, the guardrail and installation
of anchoring were completed.
