I'm not sure how one rates a light house? We saw it from our sunset light house tour we took one evening. I wouldn't take the tour just for this, but was neat to see. A very typical lighthouse that I don't believe you can...More

You can't walk on the jettied land in which the lighthouse sits. So either get on one of the many tour boats heading out to Portland Head Light or use binoculars from Portland Head to see this lighthouse. Went with friends visiting over the summer.

We saw this lighthouse from Ft Williams and were really able to get a much better look at it during the harbor cruise. Nice lighthouse standing alone. Very solemn looking.

This is a lighthouse on a small island in Casco Bay. It can be seen from the Portland Head Light area of Fort Williams park. Can be photographed with a telephoto lens of at least 200mm focal length.

Though you can't visit this lighthouse, it's still stunning to see it. It's out in the water on a little island. You can get a great view of it while visiting Portland Head Lighthouse/Fort Williams Park.

The Ram Island Ledge Light is accessible only by boat so you may see it if you take one of those lighthouse tours by boat, which I did in 1989 ("The Portland Head Tour"). You can, however, see it from several vista points at Fort...More
