Friends of Seguin Island Light Station
72 Front St., Bath
Either resident caretakers or FOSIL volunteers
provide access to the lighthouse daily, Memorial Day to Labor Day. This year’s caretakers are
Beverly and Bo Ramsey.
Visitors to Seguin should have footwear suitable for walking and getting wet. Bug spray is recommended. On calm days, the island draws a few
experienced sea kayakers, but only expert boaters with knowledge of this area should attempt to travel here on their own.
To overnight on Seguin Island, one must be a member of the Friends; see contact information above. The apartment sleeps four and has a
kitchenette, composting toilet, and shower. Linens are provided. A donation of $175 is requested.

Maine Island Trail Association
58 Fore St., Portland
This nonprofit organization acts as steward for a 375-mile-long waterway the length of the Maine coast, winding through protected bays and around exposed capes and islands. The trail comprises 191 islands and mainland sites, many of them
privately owned and most of them wild and
undeveloped. The sites are available for day visits or primitive overnight camping.
