On June 2, July 21, and August 5, participants will enjoy the Southern route and visit Point No Point, Point Lookout, and Smith Point Lighthouses, before stopping for lunch at The Bayside Inn on Smith Island.

On Saturday, June 30, lighthouse cruisers may enjoy the Northern route departing from the Drum Point Lighthouse to see Cove Point, Thomas Point, Sandy Point, Bloody Point, and Sharpes Island lighthouses. The lunch location is to be determined.
On the journey, cruisers will learn the history of the lighthouses they visit from the museum’s lighthouse expert, along with fascinating stories that make each light unique, from fires to ice floes to ravaging storms. Bring your sunscreen, camera, hat, and rain jacket, and prepare yourself for a day of fun!
