The American Lighthouse Foundation and its local chapter – Friends of Rockland Harbor Lights, invite the public to join them Friday, June 24, 2016 for a lighthouse sunset cruise on Penobscot Bay, which will feature seven Midcoast guiding lights as the evening’s “star” attractions.
This fun-filled experience is a great opportunity for participants to enjoy close-up water views of Eagle Island, Goose Rocks, Browns Head, Curtis Island, Indian Island, Owls Head and Rockland Breakwater lighthouses, all the while learning some fascinating stories associated with these historic sentinels.
The sunset cruise is a fundraiser for the American Lighthouse Foundation and Friends of Rockland Harbor Lights. Proceeds from the cruise will benefit local preservation efforts at Rockland Breakwater, Owls Head and Browns Head lighthouses.
The four-and-a-half-hour sunset cruise will depart from the Public Landing in Rockland at 4:30 p.m. aboard the Monhegan Boat Line’s P/V Elizabeth Ann. Tickets are $48 per person and reservations are recommended. A cash bar, light fare and desserts will be offered on board. Tickets can be purchased at the American Lighthouse Foundation Interpretative Center and Gift Store, located at Owls Head Light Station in Owls Head, online at www.lighthousefoundation.org or by calling 207-594-4174.
