The Seguin Island Light Station is Maine’s tallest and second-oldest light station. This is a fully functional aid to maritime navigation and is one of Maine’s most memorable places. Your adventure begins with a guided bus ride along the Phippsburg Peninsula where you’ll learn about the area’s rich history. At Fort Popham, you’ll board the boat for a stunning cruise to Seguin Island where you’ll be rowed to shore to begin your island exploration. Climb the trail to the top of the island and learn the fascinating history of this magical place. Tour the island’s trails, the keeper’s house and museum, then climb the light tower to see the first order Fresnel lens and breathtaking views from the top of Maine’s highest light.
Due to weather and sea conditions landing at the island cannot be guaranteed. The climb to the top of the island and tower is strenuous and may not be appropriate for those with health issues or who are uncomfortable with heights.
