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:
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.

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.
