And though you may not be familiar with these enthusiasts’ namesake, you’ll certainly understand their passion on this sightseeing flight! Your pilot directs you to seven stunning lighthouses—all rich in New England history—while navigating high above Schoodic Point, Baker Island, the Cranberry Islands and Blue Hill. Your Down East Maine lighthouse flight includes:

To boot, you’ll take in the sweeping beauty of Mount Desert Island—an area so stunning its population swells from 10,000 to well over 2,000,000 once tourists are taken into account! It’s also home to the famous Bass Harbor Head Light, a stately 19th-century lighthouse perched atop a beautiful Cliffside. Sounds pretty majestic, doesn’t it? See, you’re a pharophile already!
