we took a private boat from Spruce Point Inn and visited Burnt Island and the lighthouse. The island is beautiful and the history of the light house is interesting, especially for kids. A great excursion if you are staying in Boothbay!

There is a ferry from the docks in Boothbay Harbor. It is about a 15 minute trip and there is a regular schedule. I'm not certain of the schedule, but the boats do run into mid-October.
