We booked this well organized tour to get a water view of area lighthouses. A converted lobster boat was used for transport. It was novel, and provided a more intimate setting for a relatively small tour group. The boat captain ensured no passenger had a...More

this is a really fun trip across Penobscot Bay to Isleboro where we debarked to tour the lighthouse. Many diversions along the way to view birds, seals, porpoises, etc. The trip is narrated with many interesting anecdotes about the area and residents. Would highly recommend.

Best to check their web site. I think the lighthouse cruise is only Sunday. We saw many lighthouses and it was a nice trip. We went in late Sept. and dressed in layers. Probably the same in early June.
