Don't plan on seeing this unless you are on a boat tour. Otherwise will need binoculars. Don't waste your time looking for it from land.

You can't actually visit this lighthouse as it sits on an island in Bar Harbor and is a bird sanctuary. But it looks cool and got a great pic from the park.

We took the lobster boat around the island and got great pictures of all of the wildlife. A beautiful sight.

Beautiful. Can only get to by boat. Lots of birds in the island. Our boat only went by it. But it's so beautiful to look at

Took the excursion with LuLu's and got to see the amazing views. The sights of the seals and birds were breathtaking!

I've never taken a boat tour to see this place, but I have seen it from the overlooks before Sand Beach on the park loop road. Take binoculars to really get to check out this location from the pull off.

We took a both tour with Acadian Boat tours to see this lighthouse. We highly recommend this company. If you enjoy seeing lighthouses, you will be happy. There isn't really a lot more to say. You cannot access this lighthouse or visit the grounds.

Maybe one of the ugliest light houses but it has many seals nesting on it. We took the Acadian boat tour at mid afternoon and saw the light house and harbor seals laying around getting the late afternoon sun.

We were able to see this magnificent lighthouse from a boat. The harbor seals that inhabit the shore were very cute and entertaining as well.

We didn't go on the island where the lighthouse was but during a tour we did pass it and there were so many seals on the rocks below! I also though the lighthouse from the water looked beautiful.
