The Deer Isle Lighthouse Trail
The island of Deer Isle is beautifully situated on the eastern side of Penobscot Bay. Surrounded by dozens of spruce clad islands with dramatic granite ledges, there are at least 8 lighthouses within 12 miles of our shores. The Deer Isle-Stonington Chamber of Commerce, working with the U.S. Lighthouse Society and Lighthousefriends, has created a new Lighthouse Trail providing lighthouse enthusiasts an exciting opportunity to view these 8 lighthouses year-round and have their Lighthouse Passports stamped. Three of the lights are visible from the shore of Deer Isle, the other 5 lights can be viewed and/or visited by sea and all 8 can be viewed by air! Deer Isle is now an official lighthouse destination year round.
Join us for Maine Open Lighthouse Day on September 9, 2017!
Why not begin your own lighthouse tour adventure on Deer Isle! In one visit you can view 8 unique lighthouses, acquire 8 official stamps and visit one of the most beautiful islands off the coast of Maine. Deer Isle is also a vibrant art community. Several Island artists have created new collections of paintings, cards and other items depicting the lighthouses on our trail and other nautical themes.
U.S. Lighthouse Society Passports & Official Stamps for the 8 lighthouses on the Deer Isle Lighthouse Trail are available.
