July 30th, 2009 by Marilyn Marks

Cruising and visiting lighthouses on the Long Island Sound are like two peas in a pod.   East End Lighthouses does a spectacular job with their cruises aboard the Peconic Star II.  They cruise eastern Long Island and explore the history of the lighthouses that have guided many boaters throughout the waters of Long Island Sound.  Their remaining summer schedule includes:

August 15th & September 26th – Lighthouse, Maritime History & Gardiner’s Island Cruise.  Learn the history of the area including that of Plum Island and Gardiner’s Island.  Participants will see five lighthouses which include Orient Point, Plum Island, Little Gull Island, Race Rock, and Long Beach Bar lighthouses.  Maritime and lighthouse history narration is included.

September  5thVisit to Long Beach Bar “Bug” Lighthouse.  This is a unique opportunity to visit and tour the totally replicated 1870 lighthouse which took only 60 days to complete.  Climb into the lantern room of this working lighthouse and walk along the exterior walkway and get a true feel for this lighthouse.   Narration will be included with this tour.

All cruises depart at 3:30 P.M. and include a buffet dinner and Long Island wines.  Fee is $95.00 per person.  Reservations can be made in advance at East End Lighthouses or call 631-406-6180.

    Hello; I personally do not organize tours although it is just a short drive or even jog to Horton’s Point Lighthouse from Shorecrest, but there is a site, East End Lighthouses now hosted by Greenport Maritime Museum that does If you visit the Area Attractions page on my website you will find maps of the area and under ‘places of interest’ a map showing all the lighthouses. If you do visit the area, I hope to welcome you to Shorecrest! Thanks for commenting on my blog
