Cape Porpoise is a small coastal village in the town of Kennebunkport, Maine. The village occupies the mainland adjacent to Cape Porpoise Harbor. More than a dozen islands protect the deep natural harbor, and Goat Island Light marks the harbor entrance between Goat and Folly islands. Cape Porpoise Harbor, and the surrounding islands, offers the best kayaking we’ve ever experienced.
Goat Island Light (lighthouse) was established in 1835 to guard the entrance to Cape Porpoise Harbor. The original station was upgraded in 1859 to the current brick tower with a fifth order Fresnel lens. Keeper’s quarters were added to the island in 1860. the light station was automated by the United States Coast Guard in 1990 and is currently active. The keepers dwellings and tower are leased to the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust, and the island and lighthouse are open for viewing by boaters and kayakers.
According to the Kennebunkport Business Association, “Kennebunk’s Lower Village and Kennebunkport’s Dock Square are located along the ocean and Kennebunk River. Settled in the 1600’s and a long time ship building mecca, the river banks saw five-masted ships and schooners making their way down the river on their way to the sea. Sea captains built fine mansions, many of which are preserved today as lovely inns with antique charm. Over 100 years ago, this part of the Maine coast first became a resort destination – today it’s ‘the place to be all year”.
Adjacent to our office building is the Cape Porpoise Kitchen and the Wayfarer Restaurant. Both restaurants are open for breakfast and lunch.
Our office building is approximately 30 minutes from Portland (ME) Jetport; 1.5-hours from Manchester (NH) Airport; and 2-hours from Logan (Boston, MA) Airport.
