“A beautiful spot”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Saw it from the tour boat, then I saw it from the top of Cadillac Mountain, then I saw it from the east side of Acadia National Park. It's just a beautiful old lighthouse, now automated because it was too dangerous to keep people on the island.

“Weathered old lighthouse on an island”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

We saw this lighthouse from our nature cruise boat. There were seals on the island when we went by. The lighthouse is weathered and no longer manned. It looked like something that could have been in Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" but not in a spooky way. it was weatherbeaten which made it obviously look authentic.

“Great place for a lighthouse”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

This is a great lighthouse. Unfortunatly, it can only be seen by boat, but is well worth it. It is a haven for birds and seals, and bald eagles like to hang out there.

“Animals galore!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Took the Bar Harbor Whale Watch Co. Nature Cruise. FABULOUS! There were a ton of seals and gulls on the island that the lighthouse is on. Did not get out and go up to lighthouse, don't think that is allowed. Also, there was a beautiful bald eagle and two juvenile bald eagles hanging around the island that gave us quite a show. One of the highlights of my entire trip!
