2018 LIGHTHOUSE SUNSET CRUISES
On the Sunset Cruises we will not be going into the lighthouses. We will cruise up the canal, out to both Breakwater Light and Harbor of Refuge Light.
We will be cruising by each of them at Sunset so you can get closeup photos of both these iconic lighthouses. On many of the cruises we have seen lots of dolphins so bring your cameras.
This is an opportunity to go into the Harbor of Refuge lighthouse all the way up to where the lighthouse keepers stood on duty.
We will depart from the finger pier at the ferry terminal. We will be having two tours each day, back to back. Here's the 2018 tour dates:
Saturday, June 16, 2018 Noon
Saturday, July 21, 2018 3PM
Saturday, August 18, 2018 1PM
Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 9AM
We will begin taking reservations 1 April 2018
Our six year wait is over - the dock at Harbor of Refuge Light was completed 17 Nov 2016
The Board of Directors have many to thank:
Joan Larrivee of the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs for her assistance in the administration of Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Assistance Grant for Historic Properties, US Department of the Interior, which was key to the funding of the dock replacement.
Thanks to Luke Browning and the crew of Marine Technologies Incorporated for the great job they did in a very challenging environment.
Our thanks also to Laura Burgess and Mat Dow of Keast & Hood Structural Engineers for the vital role they've played throughout the project.
Most of all we'd like to thank all of our supporters - you helped make this possible!
Winter is usually a quiet time for the foundation, but we will be busy making plans for restoration and maintenance that is now possible because of the new dock. Watch for Sunset Cruise information after the first of the New Year.
We'll keep you updated on our activities and events through email, our Facebook page and this web site.
Thanks to Luke Browning of MTI and Red Moulinier for providing the photos:
