The Gauthier, Courchesne, Beaudoin, Lacroix, Tremblay and Bénard were among the first European families to settle at the lake since the late nineteenth century. Almost at the same time, led by the construction of railways, the first vacationers established on the shores of the lake as well.
In 1921, the small location was first called Bouchette-South, then renamed to Blue Sea in 1931.
With the growth of tourism in the early 1940s, Blue Sea quickly became an attractive destination, which it has remained today.
