Beautiful day for a cruise. We saw all 7 lighthouses. It was hard to hear the commentator at times but it was great and the scenery was beautiful.

we took a private boat from Spruce Point Inn and visited Burnt Island and the lighthouse. The island is beautiful and the history of the light house is interesting, especially for kids. A great excursion if you are staying in Boothbay!

They only do the tour on certain days. Call balmy day cruises and they can answer that for you.

There is a ferry from the docks in Boothbay Harbor. It is about a 15 minute trip and there is a regular schedule. I'm not certain of the schedule, but the boats do run into mid-October.
