Join an adventure by land and sea exploring the legends and lore of lighthouses in the Boothbay Harbor area. Board the passenger vessel Novelty at Pier 8 in Boothbay Harbor for a comfortable hour-long cruise through inshore waters by Ram Island Light, Cuckolds Lighthouse, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, Monhegan Light and Seguin Island Light (some locations are weather and visibility permitting).Learn the stories behind these iconic beacons; about the lives of some of the keepers and their families - daily routines, schooling, traditions and hardships, as well as legends of the lights.

Your voyage then takes a dramatic turn as you make landfall on historic Burnt Island to explore Burnt Island Light, built in 1821 and still a working lighthouse. The group will have exclusive access to the island as your qualified Red Cloak Tour Guide leads you back in time, exploring the historically restored facilities on the island, including the keeper's residence and the lighthouse.

Go home with a new and very personal understanding, not only of the lighthouses, but of the people who manned them. Hear stories of the lives these humble keepers saved while enduring their own physical hardships as they offered those who went to the sea in ships a hopeful light toward home.

Meet at Pier 8 in Boothbay Harbor.

A portion of your registration fee goes toward the restoration of the original lighthouse tower which will be 200 years old in 2021.
