Phare du Pot à l’Eau-de-Vie

What is the duration of the boat crossing?

Normally, the boat crossing to île aux Lièvres last around 20 minutes. Duvetnor’s boats are rapid, modern and efficient. They are also safe, having been inspected and approved by Transports Canada upon commissioning and by Transports Québec every year thereafter. Sauvagîles offers a partially enclosed cabin with comfortable seats and is equipped with state-of-the-art navigation and communication devices. Our crews have been sailing in the area for twenty-five years, so you can count on their experience!

Do we have access to safe drinking water on the island?

Yes. Drinking water is delivered from Rivière-du-Loup by boat.

Is swimming allowed ?

No. Out of respect for the wildlife, it is forbidden to swim along the Pot du Phare shores. Moreover, there is no beach suitable for swimming.

Are campfires allowed?

No. Campfires or bonfires are not permitted on Pot du Phare Island for security reasons.
