2014 lighthouse tour schedule

We have just posted the 2014 schedule. We have more trips scheduled and will be running into October weather permitting. We have not increased the rates despite absorbing another significant fuel price increase.
There will be 3 Northern Expedition trips and one Southern Expedition Trip the second weekend in August.
We will be doing a sunset trip every Friday evening and have had guests tell us that it is the best way to get loosened up for a fun weekend.
Come join us as we begin our14th year of helping folks see these historic structures!

Doomsday and Sharps Island Light second alert

Although this light is no longer an active aid to navigation as defined by the USCG it still serves as a navigational landmark for mariners working in the Chesapeake Bay.
Unconfirmed sources have indicated that Sharps Island light may have suffered some setbacks from the winter weather and the ice formations that have battered it in the last month. Some have stated that its lean may have increased by about 2 or 3 degrees more to the Northwest. I suggest that if you want to see the light upright you might want to schedule it this season. I am not looking forward to the day that we try to take a bearing on this structure and find that it has fallen into the Bay.
