Gaspé Bay

Gaspé Bay (French: Baie de Gaspé) is a bay located on the northeast coast of the Gaspé Peninsula, Quebec, in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The town of Gaspé, Quebec lies on a part of its southern shore, while most of its northern shore is in Forillon National Park.

British General James Wolfe raided the Bay in the Gulf of St. Lawrence Campaign (1758), the year before the Siege of Quebec.
