I think their lighthouse tours run into October but I am not sure how long into October. So give them a call.
The Sea Princess Nature Cruise is a great trip and it does go by one really awesome lighthouse on Bear Island that is only accessible from the water. The Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company Lighthouse Cruise does go to more lighthouses but if they aren't running when you come, the Sea Princess is a great alternative.
I just heard on the radio this morning that the company that runs the Acadian Nature Cruise is offering a special 3 1/2 hour Lighthouse tour. That also might be a great trip.
Thanks for the info. Will definitely check into these.
Beware! Make sure you ask about fog conditions on the ocean before you board the boat. We took the light house tour on the Bar Harbor Whale watch company. On the tour were 5 lighthouses. We saw 2. The other three were socked in by fog. Now, the company cannot control the weather, but instead of turning around and not going to the far out to sea lighthouse, the captain took a very fast ride on slightly rough ocean in complete fog. More than a few passengers were "feeding the fish" over the side of the boat, and on the floor if they could not make it to the rail. When we finally arrived at the light house, we could only hear a bell, but still could not see a thing. The captain was so proud that he "found" it in the fog and the passengers were miserable. When we returned to port, some passengers went in to complain about the tour. The manager at that time yelled at them and chased them out of the office. Please check the weather before you go.
I'll second the Sea Princess Nature Cruise. We loved the Northeast Harbor area.
