There is every variety of lighthouses within easy reach of New London harbor. New London Maritime Society owns three of them, and each summer provides a variety of lighthouse boat tours from June through October.|
Take a memorable 55-minute ride to view the three picturesque lighthouses of New London Harbor: New London Harbor 'Pequot' Light a classic octagon, the oldest and tallest lighthouse on Long Island Sound; 1909 brick New London Ledge Light reputed home to Erie the ghost; and Avery Point Light built in 1943, the newest & shortest lighthouse in Connecticut. The boat takes six passengers, only.
NLMS received the title 'Best Lighthouse Tour' from Yankee Magazine for our 55-minute tour of the three harbor lights. We also offer sunset and moonlight tours of the lighthouses. See the museum website for the tour schedule.
