With the only way to access this iconic lighthouse by boat, New England EcoAdventures is thrilled to partner with the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust as one of the approved tours of Goat Island Lighthouse.  On this 2-Hour Tour we will travel along coastal Kennebunkport, past Walker’s Point and into Cape Porpoise Harbor with its working waterfront and tranquil surroundings, to historic Goat Island Light.  After taking in the Harbor we’ll dock at Goat Island Lighthouse for a guided tour that includes educational narration and of course some of the most breathtaking photo opportunities along the southern Maine coast.  Upon conclusion of the lighthouse tour, we will embark to Bumpkin Island to hopefully enjoy the playful seals that call this island home.  A cruise past Kennebunk Beach will wrap the tour as we return back to Kennebunkport.

GOAT ISLAND LIGHT

Goat Island Lighthouse is an iconic landmark in Cape Porpoise Harbor. It was established in 1833 and has been a beacon for boaters since that time. It has seen shipwrecks, ferocious storms, generations of keepers, countless visitors, Presidents and the most glorious sunsets in Kennebunkport. The original station was upgraded in 1859 to the current brick tower with a fifth order Frensel lens. The keeper’s quarters were added to the island in 1960, where a keeper lives to this day. The light station was automated in 1990 which was one of the last to be automated in the United States. Today, Goat Island and Goat Island Lighthouse is owned and maintained by the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust.
