5th Annual
"Beacons of the Night"
Sunset/Moonlight Lighthouse Cruise

Saturday, September 18, 4:30 to 9pm
Boarding the Peconic Star II in Greenport.

We’re doing it again! Join us on our fifth annual sunset/moonlight/lighthouse cruise.
Click here for a report on the 1st Annual "Beacons of the Night" Cruise.

See several offshore lighthouses in the late afternoon. Then see them casting their beams on the return to Greenport under a near-full moon. This will be a unique opportunity to see lighthouses as they were intended to be seen: at night.

Lighthouses to be visited, depending on weather conditions, include: Long Beach Bar (The Bug Light), Orient Point (The Coffee Pot), Plum Island, Little Gull Island, and Race Rock. If the night is clear, the light from the Montauk Point lighthouse and some Connecticut lighthouses may be visible on the return trip.

Long Island Chapter volunteers will be on board to narrate and answer your questions.

Cost is $70 for members, $80 for nonmembers. Includes refreshments.
