Beautiful lighthouse, but falling into disrepair and needs to be saved! It would be a shame for the lighthouse to fall by the wayside, and it appears some work is being done to repair and restore it, but needs a lot of help.

We visited on a boat tour. Very interesting history of the island, and we got to see harbor seals and seabirds.

To us, it looked quintessential Maine. We enjoyed it from the Loop Road and also from the Schoodic part of the Acadia National park.

In addition to an overlook on the Loop Road, there is a closer and clearer view from the Schoodic Loop Road.

on a nature cruise and this is a pretty cool sight. It's not the pretties lighthouse on the Atlantic but it definitely has that New England charm. We saw Fish, Whales, Seals and a great view. Historically my wife and I enjoy visiting as many lighthouses as possible so this was good to check off the list.

We took a nature cruise that went past the Egg Rock Light. It was neat to see the lighthouse and there were seals that were basking on the other end of the island.

Take a sunset cruise - they'll take you past the Egg Rock Light which is automated. The cruise is nice - and the sunsets are spectacular.

Well, they say its the ugliest lighthouse and they are right LOL! Bird poo all over it, and it smells pretty bad as you go by.

We took the Acadian boat tour and cruised by this lighthouse. Great picture opportunity along with the seals seen frequently on the beach.

We were on the Arcadian boat tour, so we were not able to go on the grounds of the light house, but you are able to get close to get a pix and see all the wild life.
