Cape Romain Lighthouse Tour Book Now

Four times each year, Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge offers a tour to Lighthouse Island where you can view two historic lights. The event begins with a presentation on the history of the two lighthouses at the Sewee Visitor and Environmental Education Center.

Following the presentation, participants will drive to the McClellanville boat landing and board the Coastal Expeditions Ferry to travel to Lighthouse Island. Winding 6 miles offshore though the estuary to the island is part of the adventure, and skilled naturalists will provide interpretation of the flora and fauna that surrounds the boat en route to the destination.

The lights are a significant maritime landmark and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The 1827 lighthouse is the oldest of its kind still standing in the United States.

This is an incredible outdoor adventure that combines a fun-filled boat eco-tour with exploration of the lighthouses. Book your ticket today and embark on this special expedition!

2019 Trip Dates:  March 24, May 12, September 22, October 20
