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.

Our captain was very informative and he had the voice that kept you interested on the next sight. Very relaxing. It was worth the money.

Nice boat trip out, and then the island we were on was lovely and peaceful. The enactment of the lighthouse keepers family was great. Would go again

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!

I was able to get a nice photo of this from the Bennie Alice on the way to Cabbage Island. The Captain even took a moment to turn the boat so everyone could see it.

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.
