Lighthouse Legends, Lore & Haunts
Explore the legends & lore of Midcoast Maine's lighthouses, including a shore landing at historic Burnt Island.
Your adventure will be guided by Red Cloak Tours. Passengers will see up to six lighthouses, depending on weather and sea conditions, including Doubling Point Light, Hendrick's Head Light, Seguin Island Light (from afar), Ram Island Light and The Cuckolds. The visit to Burnt Island will include landing on the island for an up-close look at the restored keeper's house and other facilities, including the majestic Burnt Island Light tower.
As you go back in time with your Red Cloak guide, you’ll learn the stories behind these iconic beacons; about the lives of some of the keepers and their families, legends and haunts of the lights.
