Beacons of Boothbay Cruise
2:30 p.m. Special Events
Explore Maine's Lighthouses by land and sea! Travel the winding Sasanoa River to Boothbay Harbor with wonderful views of the four lighthouses of the Boothbay Region:
- Cuckolds Lighthouse- Originally only a fog signal, the light protects the heavy boat traffic into Boothbay Harbor
- Ram Island Lighthouse-This lighthouse marks Fisherman Island Passage
- Hendricks Head Lighthouse-Now privately owned, this lighthouse is on the Sheepscot River in Southport
- Burnt Island Lighthouse-Situated one mile outside of Boothbay Harbor, this lighthouse is now a Maine state-owned educational facility.
Then, stop to explore Burnt Island and its lighthouse and meet Keeper Joseph Muise and his family who will acquaint you with lighthouse living as it was in the 1950's.
While on the island you can visit the keeper's home and climb the spiral staircase into the lantern room to enjoy spectacular views of Boothbay Harbor, or take a picturesque hike around the 5-acre island.
