We took the Balmy Days Cruises to Burnt Island where there are actors pretending to be the lighthouse keeper and his family in the 1950s. The buildings have been beautifully restored. the actors, including the kids were great. The keeper started out" in character", but we started asking him questions and taking pictures and he soon came out of character. With all the lighthouses now automated, it is a great history lesson to see how it all started. A great way to spend a day!
We have gone on two cruises and can't wait to go back!

We have gone on two boat trips with Balmy Days cruises. The trip to Monhegan Island was beautiful. My family and I come from the Mid West and have never seen such natural beauty. We found most of the crew helpful with exception to the young woman Captain. It seemed to bother her when my husband asked her questions about the surrounding area. She did not want to talk to us. Her helpers on the other hand were full of great information as to which trails to hike and where to eat on Monhegan.
We will visit Maine again this summer and have already decided to take a trip to Monhegan Island again.
