We took our friends from NH out to Seguin Lighthouse on our boat and had a picnic. We looked in the museum and bought souvenirs. After lunch, we took a nice hike on the Island and enjoyed the beautiful view from the top of the lighthouse.

We spent the better part of a beautiful day by visiting the Sequin Lighthouse. Seguin is the highest lighthouse in New England in terms of height aboove the water line. It's a beautiful island with trails, a museum and of course, a tour of the lighthouse. This lighthouse is staffed by two folks from May 15 to Labor Day. The... More

a lovely way to spend the day. Boat leaves from the wharf at the fort at Popham Beach. Know that you will have to transfer from the boat to a dinghy when you get to the island's "harbor" to make it to the beach. Ethan is an exceptional captain, well-skilled and knowledge-able.

Not all of our visitors have the time to spend the majority of a day on this trip, but we go as often as possible. We take our own boat to the dock at Popham so we don't have to park a car (and it takes the same time as the drive from Bath) and board Ethan's comfy boat for... More

Take the Seguin Island Ferry from Fort Popham. It is a 30 minute ride, $30 round trip. Then you get a dinghy ride to the beach and then walk a steep trail to the lighthouse. (The only drawback to the whole visit is that it is not accessible for wheelchair users.) The working lighthouse is open Memorial Day to Labor... More

From the shore line, it looks like such a tiny little island with only the light house & keepers cottage but taking the ferry out & finding 64 acres of lush green island in the middle of the Atlantic was truly a surprise. The boat ride over was beautiful & the dingy launch to shore was fun. The carefully tended... More

We visited many lighthouses while in Maine (touring the coast). This Lighthouse was one of many that we enjoyed seeing. We got some good pictures but did not actually go to the island.

I went to this place a long time ago and it was during winter. I was invited to a friends house so obiously was not my intention to be at almost 0 degrees :). I just remember that the view was nice and I had the oportunity to see the sunset. The cold was aweful but loved the moon light

If you are visiting Mid-Coast Maine during the summer and you are close to the area south of Bath, the half day excursion to the island of Seguin off the coast at Popham is well worth considering. Seguin is a rather small but significant island covering 64 acres and rising 140 feet above the sea. The island is uninhabited but... More

This past Saturday (Open Lighthouse Day) I awoke in West Bath remembering it was open lighthouse day...and in minutes we found the number for Seguin Charters and Ferry (Fish n' Trips I think is how they advertise) and like that we were off and running. Flash forward 2 hours later and we are just reaching the island...and to our surprise,... More
