Cape Neddick Lighthouse - York
Located on the “Nubble,” a rocky island off the eastern end of Cape Neddick, Cape Neddick Lighthouse is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. Viewing is best from Sohier Park or book a lighthouse cruise! There is no public access to the island.
Finestkind Cruises is located in Ogunquit on Perkins Cove, a short 7-mile drive from York. From May to October, the 1 ½ hour Nubble Lighthouse Cruise sails 4 times daily. You can expect breathtaking photo opportunities!
Spend a leisurely afternoon at Sohier Park for more views of “Nubble” Light. Be sure to keep an eye out for harbor seals, sun fish and double-crested cormorants. The Cape Neddick Beach has a small rocky beach with tide pools and is a fun spot for exploring.
Afternoon treat of homemade ice cream at Dunne’s.
