Unique Opportunity
Guided Tour of Boston Lighthouse-America’s Oldest Light Station
With
Chart House Dinner on Long Wharf


August 25, 2017
Friday

Join a National Park Service Ranger and the United States Coast Guard, for an unforgettable tour of Boston Light, America's oldest light station. During our 3 1/2 hour narrated tour you will travel to the outer reaches of Boston Harbor to Little Brewster Island where the historic lighthouse is perched high above a rocky outcropping. Situated 8 miles from downtown, the light has marked the opening to Boston’s outer harbor since 1718. Burned by the British as they evacuated Boston in 1776, the light was ordered rebuilt in 1789 by President George Washington. It is the only lighthouse in America that still has a lighthouse keeper – all others are automated and un-manned.
 
We’ll meet the keeper, the first woman to hold the post, and hear tales of life as a lonely lighthouse keeper from the early days up to the present. You’ll have an opportunity to join a guided tour and climb the 76 steps to the top (optional) for a close-up look at the Light’s Fresnel Lens and be rewarded with a spectacular view of the Boston skyline and outer islands.
 
As we make our way back to shore, we’ll cruise through the many islands that dot Boston Harbor and have a close-up look at two more lighthouses - Graves Light and Long Island Head Light
 
Our exciting day will end with a relaxing dinner at the Chart House located at the tip of Long Wharf just steps away from our disembarkation point. This historic building was once John Hancock’s warehouse and his safe can still be seen embedded in the dining room wall.
