“Functioning Marriners warning”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Not approachable except by water, this light is intended to keep ocean going vessels from hitting shallow water. Champlain would have found it helpful on his historic visit. During foggy weather as you walk or rest near Bar Harbor, this is the soothing moan you hear adding its' voice to the warning light. Most Frenchmans' Bay trips will pass by this "rock" during your trip.

“Viewed from the air.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We viewed this lighthouse from the air on one of the lighthouse plane tours. It was a nice way to see the lighthouse, because we got there very quickly, had plenty of time to take photos and we got to see so many other sights on the tour as well. I wouldn't make the trip out here just to see the lighthouse, but when combined with other places it was definitely worth it! You can also see this lighthouse from some areas in Acadia National Park with some binoculars.

“Just a lighthouse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Lighthouses exist to provide a service. This one has for many years. It is quite picturesque. For those who enjoy the look of a lighthouse it is very nice. Personally not convinced it is worth a lot of time looking at it, photographing, etc. bar Harbor and surroundings are loaded with beautiful and worthwhile places

“Classic Maine lighthouse worth seeing up close on. Boat t”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Do a boat tour and see the lighthouse up close. Depending on time of year lots of wildlife to view birds and seals especially.

“Diving here was intense”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We had strong currents that caused some trouble but we had a great dive and saw hundreds of lobster.

We dive with Diver Ed and the gang and it is always a blast.
