Egg Rock Light is a lighthouse on Frenchman Bay, Maine. Built in 1875, it is one of coastal Maine's architecturally unique lighthouses, with a square tower projecting through the square keeper's house. Located on Egg Rock, midway between Mount Desert Island and the Schoodic Peninsula, it is an active aid to navigation, flashing red every 40 seconds. The light was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Egg Rock Light Station in 1988.

  • Took a nature cruise and saw tons of seals on the rocks laying out. If the seals weren't there, it wouldn't be worth it though.  more »
  • This light is on an island in the Bay. We visited with Acadian's lighthouse tour. While we did not get off the boat, we got great views of the lighthouse and the seals and seal pups on the shore.  more »
