Thomas Point Lighthouse tour dates announced

| March 10, 2019
Rams Head

Built in 1875 and now a National Historic Landmark, Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse (TPSL) is the last “intact” lighthouse of its kind left in its original location. The lighthouse has been beautifully restored by the U.S. Lighthouse Society, which operates tours in partnership with the Annapolis Maritime Museum. These excursions provide the only exclusive interior tours; guests are guided by an experienced lighthouse docent as they learn the history of the light, the life of a keeper in the early days, and the role of our modern-day Coast Guard.

2019 Tour Dates

June 8 & 15 ∙ July 6, 13, 27 ∙ August 3, 17, & 31 ∙ September 7 & 28 ∙ October 5

Details:       Two tours are offered each day, at 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Tours are two hours and include 30 minute boat rides to and from the lighthouse, with opportunities to photograph the lighthouse from every angle, and a one-hour interior tour.

Location:    Tours depart from the docks of the Annapolis Maritime Museum.

Tickets:       $80.00 per person

(Funds are used for the continued restoration of the lighthouse.)
