Sunset Lighthouse Boat Tour
Our Sunset tours have ended for the 2019 season. Thank you!

NB: Please sign up at least 8 hours in advance.
   For last-minute tickets, please call 203-444-2884.

Twilight is a magical time to be on the water.

Local, Personable, Authentic. Explore the region's lighthouses -- as the sun sets -- with the one who knows them best.  

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 one-hour 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 lighthouse in Connecticut. The boat takes six passengers, only. Trips coincide with the three days of the full moon.

Best of all, all monies raised by NLMS go towards restoration of our local lighthouses.    
Tours commence Sunday, June 16 and run through October!

Remember: Reservations, 8 hours in advance, are necessary for all of our tours, as we need to notify our captains. (If you want to take a chance with a day-of tour, please call 860-447-8700.)

We meet on New London Waterfront Park at the floating dock by the Custom House Pier, which is directly behind the Custom House.

Directions: from the bottom of State Street (right of the train station), turn right onto Water Street and drive the few blocks to where Water Street ends in a T.
At that point, make a quick hairpin turn by taking a left over the train tracks, and another left onto Waterfront Park. There is a place to park on the right-hand side at the road. I will be there to greet you a few minutes before we take off.

Tours last approximately 60 minutes.
