                                           Lighthouse Lovers Cruise

 

 Lighthouses were built to be seen from the water and Maine Maritime Museum offers you the chance to see ten of Maine’s finest lighthouses the way they were meant to be seen!  

On this cruise you will see all the lighthouses along the Kennebec Historic Waterway and through Boothbay Harbor.  Keep your camera ready to see:

  • Doubling Point Lighthouse-Built in 1898, it is a white octagonal tower placed on the upper end of Fiddler’s Reach.
  • Kennebec Range Lights-A unique set of two beacon towers designed to help ships maneuver through a difficult bend of the river. Ask our Captain to show you how they work!
  • Squirrel Point Lighthouse-A small, white wooden tower with a small room and attached walkway.  Built in 1898.
  • Perkins Island Lighthouse-A white, wooden octagonal tower, with the keeper’s house, barn and stone bell tower.
  • Pond Island Lighthouse-A white conical tower near the mouth of the Kennebec River.  No other buildings remain on Pond Island.
  • Seguin Island Lighthouse-Located two miles south of the mouth of the Kennebec River.  The tower is only 53 feet tall and has one of the most powerful foghorns made. 
  • The Cuckolds Lighthouse-Originally only a fog signal, the light protects the heavy boat traffic into Boothbay Harbor
  • Ram Island Lighthouse-This lighthouse marks Fisherman Island Passage.
  • Burnt Island Lighthouse-Situated one mile outside of Boothbay Harbor, this lighthouse is now a Maine state-owned educational facility.  See our Beacons of Boothbay cruise for a chance to explore the island!
  • Hendricks Head Lighthouse-Now privately owned, this lighthouse is on the Sheepscot River in Southport.

  

This cruise is 4 hours long.   Passengers will remain on the boat for the length of the cruise. The Merrymeeting's professionally trained crew provides fascinating narration and a safe, comfortable cruise. Guests are welcome to bring aboard food and non-alcoholic beverages. A cash bar, with light snacks, is available onboard.  

 

Tickets are non-refundable, except in the event of a weather cancellation.  The Merrymeeting is a 56' motor vessel with a covered lower deck and uncovered upper deck. Cruises run in light rain and other moderate weather conditions. 

Cruises may be cancelled in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions or unmet minimum ticket sales, and cancellations are made by the Captain on the day of the cruise.  If the Museum cancels a cruise, you will have the opportunity to reschedule, or receive a refund. 

The temperature on the water can vary throughout the day.  Please come prepared with extra layers. Access to the boat requires negotiating a ramp down to the float.


Be sure to get your Lighthouse Passport stamped in our Museum shop.
