“Our favorite place to kayak”

Burnt Island Lighthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 January 2012

You can take a boat from Boothbay Harbor and see the historical presentation that takes you back to the days when the lighthouse keeper and his family lived at the light,
Our favorite way to get there is by kayak. A beautiful place for a picnic lunch. Burnt Island also has to be one of the most photogenic lighthouses on the Maine Coast.

The Burnt Island Lighthouse tour is a fun day out. The tour consists of about a 20 minute boat ride (included in the ticket) from the pier in Boothbay, and an island/lighthouse tour on Burnt Island. The tour is done in the style of a sort of Plymouth Plantation-style recreation village. The actors tell the story of a family that lived out on the island in the 1950's, and you visit their restored home and can climb up to the top of the lighthouse. They also take you around the island and tell you about the local history, wildlife and fisheries. It is a very informative and fun tour - I recommend it!
