EXPLORE THE HISTORIC WOOD & GOAT ISLAND LIGHTHOUSES

See two of Maine’s historic lighthouses on this two-hour tour! You zip up the coast, past Walker’s Point and Goose Rocks Beach, and land at Wood Island Lighthouse at the mouth of the Saco River. The only way to see this historic lighthouse is by boat.

After some lighthouse history and, of course, photo opportunities, we embark to the only lighthouse in Maine with a keeper. Before we arrive at Goat Island Light, we stop at Bumpkin Island to enjoy the playful seals that call the island home.

We then swing into Stage Harbor, a nice little harbor where people camp and enjoy some swimming. After Stage Harbor, we visit Cape Porpoise Harbor, with its working waterfront and tranquil surroundings. Three-and-a-half-acre Goat Island is located roughly a mile offshore from Cape Porpoise, a quiet vacation spot with “a few shops, a few eateries, a few guesthouses, and a lot of Maine atmosphere.”

Goat Island is also a scenic masterpiece with some of the nicest sunsets in Kennebunkport. This is an excellent chance to see a working lighthouse! After some photos and island history, mostly ghost stories, we head back into Kennebunkport. If time permits, we cruise by Kennebunk Beach so you can see it from an ocean view.
