Explore Inside Ledge Light on the New London Harbor Lighthouse Tour
Tour the area's lighthouses with the one who knows them best. There is every variety of lighthouse within reach of our harbor and the New London Maritime Society owns three of them! View nearby lighthouses and learn their stories, then land at New London Ledge Light and explore inside all the way up to the lantern.
Thanks to a grant from the New London Water Authority, tickets for New London children and their parents are just $5, each.
Be aware, landing at Ledge Light demands a little physical dexterity. You don't have to be a Ninja, but you will have to balance on the edge of a boat and step up to reach the platform.
Ledge Light (1909), along with the New London Harbor Light (est. 1760, current tower 1801) and Race Rock Light Station (1878) at the opening of Long Island Sound to the ocean, create a pathway of beacons leading from the Atlantic to New London. All three lights are now owned by the New London Maritime Society. Ledge Light is preserved by our partner, the Ledge Light Foundation. Monies raised by these tours support restoration of our local lighthouses.
It's all part of our Sentinels on the Sound - New London Lighthouse Summer. Go to our website nlmaritimesociety.org to find out about more events.
