Plans are afoot to reopen the Cuckolds light to visitors in the summer of 2013. The lighthouse is now owned by a private group that has been working to restore the buildings over the past few years. Until the lighthouse was automated, lightkeepers lived on the island for 82 years.
To get to a good vantage point to see the light and take photos follow Rt 27 through Boothbay Harbor Village to Southport Island. The lighthouse can be viewed from the town dock.
