This was a wonderful trip to visit the Island and Lighthouse. I will go again. Wear good shoes to walk/hike. The shoreline trails are rocky. Pack a lunch and water too.

We took Captain Ethan's ferry to visit the Sequin Island Lighthouse. A beautiful island with a lovely lighthouse and many short hiking trails. The ferry is actually a fishing boat. To get on and off the boat, you need to climb up and down the ladder. (due to the tide) One of the older passengers was having a little difficulty... More

Paddling to Seguin Island on a choppy day proved to be well worth the work. 7 of us made the paddling on a day filled with wind, chop and the current of the Kennebec provided some adventure out to the light house. Once there, the light house keepers were great hosts. The walk to the top was amazing as well... More

We took this trip with our friends from KY. I had never been to this lighthouse. We had a late start from Georgetown. I called Ethan to let him know we might not make it. We got there just in time. They were still waiting for us. What a fabulous boat ride. Seguin is amazing. Loved the old track where... More

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
