“Seals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Up close with this abandoned lighthouse on a boat tour at low tide. Lots of seals basking in the 70+ degree weather. Interesting historical story and how families used to live on the island to keep the lighthouse fire stoked. Hard to get a good view of this island, unless you are on a tour boat.

“Nice lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

It's nice to see lighthouses like this still working, even though the lighthouse keeper has gone away. The seals have taken up residence out there on the island and the occassional bald eagle. Be sure to see it on one of the many tour boats when you are out and about.

“See the seals!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Lovely old lighthouse used for research of marine life. You can't get on the island so taking a boat trip or whale watching will get you close enough to see the seals sunning on the rock cliffs.

“"Bar Harbor Icon"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Saw Egg Rock light house up close while on a nature cruise. Odd looking but very special light house guarding Bar Harbor. Saw many seals and learned other interesting things about this light house. Very pleasent trip.
