Take a walk out to sea without getting your feet wet! Rockland Harbour Breakwater Light is a historic lighthouse complex at the end of the Rockland Breakwater in the harbour of Rockland, Maine. Replacing a light station at Jameson Point, the light was established in 1902, about two years after the completion of the breakwater. Keep an eye out - a walk out the Rockland Breakwater often offers sightings of shorebirds and harbour seals.
Remarks/requirements: Wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes. Dress warmly. There is always a breeze on the breakwater and as you approach the lighthouse (almost a mile “out to sea”) there is a noticeable decrease in temperature.
Walking information: Almost one mile to the lighthouse but at guests discretion if they want to go the complete way. Note: Walk is level but on uneven surface. There are some gaps between blocks. Granite blocks can be slippery when wet.
Wheelchair accessible: No
