Lighthouse tours Calvert Marine Musuem Baynet

SOLOMONS, MD-- Lighthouse lovers and history buffs are invited to the popular Lighthouse Adventure Cruises starting in June. 

The cruises will take place June 18, July 23, August 13 and September 3. Participants will meet at the Calvert Marine Museum under the Drum Point Lighthouse at 7:45 a.m. Expected return time to the museum is 4:30 p.m., said Traci Cimini, with Public Relations and Marketing at the museum.

Cost of the day-long cruise is $130, and lunch is not included. Interested cruisers will need to register five days prior to the scheduled cruise date, said Cimini.

“Depending on the journey taken, cruisers will learn the history of the lighthouses they visit from the museum’s lighthouse expert, learning fascinating stories about each unique light, from fires to ice floes to ravaging storms,” said Cimini.

In June and in August, lighthouse cruisers will take the northern route, starting at the Drum Point Lighthouse, said Cimini.

“The northern cruise includes Cove Point, Thomas Point, Sandy Point, Bloody Point, and Sharps Island lighthouses,” said Cimini. “Lunch is at Kentmoor Restaurant on Kent Island.”

In July and September, cruisers will take the southern route and visit Point No Point, Point Lookout, and Smith Point Lighthouses before stopping for lunch on Smith Island, said Cimini.

“After taking in the local sites, the cruise will continue on to circle Solomon’s Lump and Hooper Island Lighthouses,” said Cimini. “Make sure to bring your sunscreen, camera, hat, and rain jacket, and prepare yourself for a day of fun!”

Space is limited and pre-registration is required, said Cimini.
