On this 2-Hour tour you’ll zip up the coast, past Walker’s Point, Goose Rocks Beach and land at Wood Island Lighthouse at the mouth of the Saco River. The only way to see this historical lighthouse is by boat. After some lighthouse history and of course photo opportunities we’ll embark to the only lighthouse in Maine with a Keeper. Before we arrive at Goat Island Light we’ll stop at Bumpkin Island to hopefully enjoy the playful seals that call the island home. We’ll then swing into Stage Harbor, a nice little harbor where people camp and enjoy some swimming. After Stage Harbor we’ll visit Cape Porpoise Harbor with it’s 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 scenic master piece with some of the nicest sunsets in Kennebunkport.  After some photos and island history, which are mostly ghost stories, we’ll head back into Kennebunkport. If time permits we’ll cruise by Kennebunk Beach so you can see it from an ocean view. This is an excellent chance to see a working lighthouse that is only accessible by boat. Get ready for some adventure because this tour has it all. If you love lighthouse, seals, beautiful scenery or just want to be on the ocean, this is the tour for you! ($89.00/pp)  ***Tickets must be purchased in advance***
