Maine Lighthouses- from the sea and from the land

Pemaquid Pt Lighthouse
Maine lighthouses epitomize the soul's searching for light in the darkness. The siren song to the sailor from shore. Even those who live nowhere near the sea recognize the beacon beckoning to them from afar.

Come celebrate the hundreds of years of service by Maine lighthouses (the first one was commissioned by George Washington!) on Maine Lighthouse Day- September 17, 2011. Lighthouses up and down the coast are open for tours.

If one day is not enough for you, many Maine lighthouses are viewable from the shore any day of the year and some are open for limited tours during the summer. Boat tours are available during the summer season.

Check out these local tours:

  1. Maine Maritime Museum Lighthouse boat tour.
  2. Lucky Catch Lobster Boat cruise to the lighthouses.
  3. Portland Schooner Day Sails.
Or, pick up a copy of 'Discovering Maine's Lighthouses' when you stay here with us. There are easy, one hour drives you can take along the coast to see 10 or more lighthouses. Have lobster overlooking the coast with lighthouses in the background. Sit on the breakwater and watch windjammers breeze by. All in Maine- the way vacations should be!
