West Quoddy Head Light

Reviewed By rnmteach - Massachusetts

West Quoddy light is one of those iconic images that one must see in person. Even in the fog the lighthouse and surrounding are breathtaking. There is a gravel walk to the left of the park that is nice but doesn't have any good ocean views. I think it connects to the coast guard station up the road.

Machias Seal Island

Protected habitat for many bird species.

Reviewed By CJ B - Wayland, Massachusetts

We traveled with Captain Andy Patterson and his assistant Tyler aboard the Barbara Frost from Cutler Harbor out to the island. It's 10 miles out and takes about 50 minutes. The guides are very careful to protect the nesting birds from the daily visitors. You can watch and photograph the nesting Puffins, Razorbills, and Common Murres from the blinds. The island is also accessible from Grand Manan on the Canadian side. There are no facilities on the island itself, only on the boats.

We enjoyed a week in Eastport staying at the condos above the gift shop. Morning light streams in as activity progresses on the bay while you enjoy breakfast. A wonderful place to stay, right on the waterfront and walking distance to several eating establishments .

Quoddy Head State Park

Spanning more than 481 acres, this scenic park offers hikers breathtaking trails that follow along rock cliffs rising 80 feet above the ocean.

Reviewed By Sue459 - Mt. Desert Island

This is the loveliest hiking trail on the Maine coast! Compared to years ago, the trail is easier to hike since there are now steps where there used to be a steep dirt incine and benches in locations with beautiful views. Public restrooms are near the start of the trail, and there is a shorter trail to the bog, which we didn't visit. There is no easy access to the beach except the stairs near the lighthouse. Fog often obscures the view of Grand Manan. The views along the trail are spectacular, and it's not a difficult hike altho the inclines and steps would present a challenge for some. The park is about 7 miles from Lubec, with roads clearly marked. This state park is a gem in the Maine state system.

We went on an afternoon whale watching cruise, saw several minke whales, porpoises, seals and a bald eagle nest including a juvenile and an adult (both perched and in flight). The men on the ship had all sorts of great information about the area and about the history and current status of the fishing industries. Even pulled up a couple of lobster traps and showed us how they work on the way in.

Reviewed By FranklinHeadrick - Lubec, Maine

Just got back from my first boat tour with Downeast Charter Boat Tours. Great tour of Cobscook Bay. Saw several harbor porpoises, a minke whale and also a finback whale during the tour. Got some nice pics of the Old Sow Whirlpool, second largest whirlpool in the world. Captain Ralph was a great tour guide and took us around to some of the most scenic sites of the bay. Excellent, relaxing boat ride and wonderful scenery.
