East End Lighthouse Tour-90 Minutes

Book now!

THIS TOUR DEPARTS FROM THE LEWES FERRY TERMINAL AT
43 CAPE HENLOPEN DRIVE LEWES DELAWARE
 
 

This infamous beacon was placed permanently on the east end of the breakwater at Cape Henlopen in April, 1885. Since that time, the East End Lighthouse has withstood everything Atlantic coastal storms could throw at it. Today, this lighthouse and the Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse are two of Southern Delaware’s most recognizable treasures.

 

Sure, you’ve seen photos of Southern Delaware’s iconic lighthouses and perhaps seen them from a distance, but do you know their history? Have you wondered what they're like inside? Cape Water Tours and Taxi’s 90 minute narrated tour offers not only the chance to learn the rich maritime history of the East End Lighthouse and the surrounding area, but also the opportunity to explore and photograph both the interior and exterior of the impressive structure yourself. There will be about 20 minutes of narration on the way to AND from the East End Lighthouse plus time to disembark for a closer look inside. 

 

On this cruise you’ll also enjoy panoramic views of the Lewes shoreline while enjoying a comfortable, safe cruise on the calm and beautiful waters of our Delaware Bay.
