Bar Harbor Whale Watch’s all-day “Grand Slam” lighthouse cruises every July cruises close to 17 -18 lighthouses on the northern Maine coast and in New Brunswick, Canada. The 2020 cruise didn’t happen due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, this “virtual cruise” with lighthouse historian Jeremy D’Entremont, photographer Mike Leonard, and Julie Taylor of Bar Harbor Whale Watch was presented on July 24. The U.S. Lighthouse Society was a partner on the event.
Jeremy D’Entremont is the author of more than 20 books and hundreds of articles on lighthouses and maritime history. He is the president and historian for the American Lighthouse Foundation and founder of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses, and he has lectured and narrated cruises throughout the Northeast and in other regions. He is also the producer and host of the U.S. Lighthouse Society podcast, “Light Hearted.” He can be emailed at Jeremy@uslhs.org
