LIS Lighthouse Boat Excursion with lighthouse experts
Our 2nd annual Long Island Sound Lighthouse Conference takes place Monday and Tuesday, April 24-25, in New London, Connecticut, and is sponsored by the New London Maritime Society.

This listing is for Tuesday's events, only.

On Tuesday morning, explore downtown New London, beginning with coffee at the Custom House Maritime Museum, where you may view two new photography exhibitions: 'Stars & Lights: LIS', by David Zapatka, and 'Lighthouses, Tall Ships, and Submarines: Maritime Photos from The Day's Photojournalists'.


We just got some new details about the lighthouse tour on Cross Sound Ferry.
At noon, we will be traveling aboard Sea Jet, Cross Sound Ferry's fast, safe and comfortable catamaran. We will cover over 40 miles of coastline and see onshore and offshore lighthouses in three States: Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island. This trip offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear stories and narration by a team of lighthouse authorities: Bob Muller, Elinor DeWire, and Cross Sound's own Ted Webb, among them.
