The best way to explore Eagle Island Light is through one of our sponsored events. Every August, we host our much anticipated Open House. We also join forces with local land trusts, nonprofits, and ferry services to provide additional events throughout the summer season. Check back often to see our list of upcoming event, or get up-to-the-minute updates on our social media pages.
Annual Open House Countdown
Eagle Island Light Open House
August 13, 2023 | 12 – 3 pm
The lighthouse will be open for you to go up and get the best view of Penobscot Bay that there is. Bring a picnic and spread out in the meadow with family and friends. Lemonade and cookies will be served. Plus you can shop Eagle Light Caretaker “merch” – we have tees for adults and kids, baseball hats, tote bags plus a new limited-run hoodie.
Transportation is available on the Katherine mailboat or come by your own boat and anchor off the lighthouse beach and follow signs to the top.
Maine Lighthouse Day
