Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse News

We are excited anticipating the return of the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse Tours! We plan to begin in June, running through October. All tours are subject to change, and there will be further notice with respect to safety measures in light of the pandemic. All updates can be found at

Tours depart from Annapolis, Maryland. The specific dock is located at waters edge behind the Annapolis Maritime Museum located at 723 2nd St Annapolis, MD 21403. The vessel “Sharps Island” will be moored at the closest pier to the Horn Point Marina. In the rare occasion that the cruise is cancelled due to weather or any other reason, then you will have the choice to receive a credit voucher for a future cruise or a refund. Remember, all money collected helps support the preservation of the lighthouse. Each day has two cruise times to choose from, either 9:00am or 12:00pm, and registration is on a first come first serve basis, so get your name in early!

Come see our lighthouse and the great work that the Chesapeake Chapter volunteers of the U.S. Lighthouse Society are doing to preserve this national treasure we all share!
