It's time to sign up for the Lighthouse Sunset Cruises which are back for another great season!

Leaving from Angler's Fishing Center in Lewes, we will cruise the Lewes Rehoboth Canal, cross Roosevelt Inlet, and into the Harbor of Refuge to see Delaware Breakwater East End Light and Harbor of Refuge Light. On these sunset cruises we will not be going into the lighthouses but will stop nearby each one for some great views. We often see dolphins on these trips, so be sure to bring a camera! This is a BYOB and snacks event. The cost for the cruise is $40.00 per person.

2024 Sunset Cruise Dates:
September 7, 5:30 to 7:30 PM

Or you could watch the birds,
and enjoy watching the dolphins swimming by.



Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse Tours
The US Army Corps of Engineers is continuing its study of the breakwater on which Harbor of Refuge Light stands. We received their Major Maintenance Report (MMR), which recommends ways to repair the breakwater, but they have requested that no public tours be conducted until further notice.

Please read this article in the Cape Gazette regarding Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse tours.

Here are two photos showing what the Corps of Engineers has found in their studies of the breakwater.

The cover of the April issue of the Delaware Beach Life magazine features the Harbor of Refuge lighthouse sitting on an eroding breakwater off Lewes. Photograph by our member and past persident Red Moulinier. An article on page 24 magazine explains how our lighthouse is in jeopardy. There are pictures of the lighthouse, and the missing foundation stones, and a diagram of what's happening below the water. At the end of the article is a video. You can view the video here.
