Heron Neck Light Station was built in 1854. The lighthouse is not open to the public, but it can be seen by boat. Set atop a bold, rocky cliff at the southern tip of Green Island, this white and red-topped light marks the entrance to Hurricane Sound and guides mariners to Carver's Harbor, a busy seaport on Vinalhaven Island.
Beginning May 1, travelers from all states will be able to travel to Maine without providing a negative COVID-19 test result or quarantining, unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC. If a state experiences a spike in COVID-19 cases, the Maine CDC will apply testing and quarantine protocols to all travelers from that state.
