| May 15, 2020

Percé Rock is a rocky cliff where a 49-foot hole has been eroded out of the limestone to create a large arch formation. The whole rock formation is 1,420 foot long, 300 foot wide and 289 foot high, and it can only be visited for 4 hours at a time during low tide when the water recedes. There are over 200 species of seabirds found nearby, including a large colony of northern gannets and over 110,000 nesting birds. Share:
