We saw the Egg Rock Light from the tour boat. It was very cool to see the building up close along with all the seals and birds. Beautiful picture opportunity. You can see this light in the distance from the Bar Harbor path.

We took a nature boat around the islands. This was my favorite place . We saw many harbor seals on these rocks. I loved it so much, I found a Cat's Meow of the Lighthouse for my collection at home. It was a very pleasurable journey.

Some of the cruise ships seem to go out near it,but you always see and hear the Egg rock light on the East side of the island. you get a great view from Champlain, Beehive and Gorham especially. An important light as it is the entrance to the bay and Bar Harbor.

We saw this from Lulu's lobster boat. Sad to see the lighthouse deteriorating like it is. There were Seals and Eagles near the light house so very picturesque.

Seals and birds everywhere. The lighthouse is a bit mysterious looking but the seals were plentiful and friendly.

Maine calls it the ugliest lighthouse, but I liked it. The island had a large population of harbor seals.

We saw this from our Bar Harbor Whale Watching boat. It was amazing to see the seals and their calves actively swimming.

Saw the Egg Rock Light House while out on a boat tour, beautiful sight with all the seals and birds on the island with the light house. It is interesting to see the damage the ocean waters has done to the light house from the big storms that have hit the Bar Harbor.

We got to see egg rock lighthouse when we took a nature cruise and it was fun not only to learn about the lighthouse, but to see all the birds and seals that have taken over the island.
