The Seguin Island Light Station was commissioned by George Washington in 1795. It's Maine's highest and second oldest light station! It is a fully functional, aid to navigation and is one of Maine's most memorable places.
The 1st Order Fresnel lens was installed on Seguin Island in 1857. This extremely rare lens stands 9 feet tall and can be seen for 20+ nautical miles. This priceless jewel is not only irreplaceable it is also non-reproducible! Visit the island and the caretakers will give you a tour of the tower and this magnificent lens.
The Island opens in May. The friends of the Seguin Island Light Station have relationships with many local Charter/Ferry services with knowledgeable captains, ready to take you to one of the most breathtaking places in Midcoast Maine.
