Event Details

Join an adventure by land and sea exploring the legends and lore of lighthouses in the Boothbay Harbor area. Board the passenger vessel Novelty at Pier 8 in Boothbay Harbor for a comfortable one-hour cruise through inshore waters by Ram Island Light, Cuckolds Lighthouse, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, Monhegan Light and Seguin Island Light (some locations are weather permitting).

Learn the stories behind these iconic beacons; about the lives of some of the keepers and their families - daily routines, schooling, traditions and hardships, as well as legends of the lights. Your voyage then takes a dramatic turn as you make landfall on historic Burnt Island to explore Burnt Island Light, built in 1821 and still a working lighthouse.

A portion of the ticket price will go to help maintain Burnt Island Lighthouse.

WE NEED TO MEET A MINIMUM NUMBER BY MID-MAY, SO PLEASE BOOK EARLY!!
