Sunset Cruise

Take a sunset cruise - they'll take you past the Egg Rock Light which is automated. The cruise is nice - and the sunsets are spectacular.

Well, they say its the ugliest lighthouse and they are right LOL! Bird poo all over it, and it smells pretty bad as you go by.

We took the Acadian boat tour and cruised by this lighthouse. Great picture opportunity along with the seals seen frequently on the beach.

We were on the Arcadian boat tour, so we were not able to go on the grounds of the light house, but you are able to get close to get a pix and see all the wild life.

Lighthouse is strange (as our guide put it - New England's ugliest lighthouse) - but it is where the seals and birds hang out - so great place to check out on a tour.

We did a nature cruise to get to this location. It was well worth the journey! We were even lucky enough to have a Bald Eagle follow our boat for a bit of our journey. This was the first lighthouse I have ever seen in person and it was pretty cool seeing it and all of the seals along the... More

If a lighthouse exists in the zip code we're visiting, we want to see it. My husband and I feel thankful we took the Lulu Lobster Boat tour for a nice, close-up view to an otherwise inaccessible light in the Gulf of Maine. Egg Rock light is on a rock. Surrounded by rock and water, it is far from shore... More

We enjoyed seeing this lighthouse from one of our walks in Acadia National Park. Make sure you see this on your trip through the park.

This island light house is a landmark that can be seen from the loop road in Acadia National Park. You can get an up close view from one of the whale tours too.

We saw this lighthouse by boat while on the Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company's lighthouse tour. There were seals sunning themselves on the rocks near the lighthouse. What a treat.
