The Arisaig Lighthouse is a replica of the original Arisaig Point Lighthouse, which burned in the early 1930s. Interpretive panels are located on rocks around the Lighthouse which tell the story of the historic fishing community of Arisaig. 

The Lobster Interpretive Centre displays information on the local lobster fishery. Exhibits include preserved lobster specimens and videos on lobster life cycles.

Visitors can dine onsite at the Dockside Café. Guests have a choice of seafood specialties, including fishcakes and fish chowder. Ice cream is sold at the lighthouse during July and August.

Bus tours are welcome.

Arisaig is located on Route 245 in Antigonish County, on the Northumberland Strait.
