Cross Sound Ferry – New London – Photographing Lighthouses
June 25, 2015
When’s the last time you hopped on a boat and cruised around the Atlantic Ocean in search of lighthouses? For me, it hasn’t happened yet, but now it’s on my calendar in BIG RED LETTERS! You see, the fine folks at the Cross Sound Ferry – with a departure from New London, CT – have a really interesting and fun trip around the sound visiting ocean structures. It’s their LIGHTHOUSE CRUISE!
And the visits aren’t just blasts by each lighthouse, they allow passengers time to learn about each building, take photos (even selfies if you trust yourself not to drop your phone in Long Island Sound), and enjoy a little time on the water.
In fact, those big red letters on my calendar have me taking this journey in late July or early August and I promise you to share photos, first-hand experiences, maybe a video from the boat via Periscope, and definitely photos of the food someone should enjoy when viewing lighthouses.
According to the Website, the Cross Sound Ferry lighthouse cruise takes about two hours and happens three times a week. It’s W, Sat and Sun at 12:30PM until September 9, 2015 and then it’s only Saturday at 12:30PM from September 10 through October 10 when they do their last tour of the summer.
The team at Cross Sound Ferry also shared some photos with me (though I’m anxious to get even better shots when I go)…
Cost of the Lighthouse Cruise is $28 for adults and $14 for kids 2-11. Children under 2 are free. For more info, follow any of the links above or go to https://www.longislandferry.com/Common/Help.aspx?page=lighthousecruise
Maybe I’ll see you on my cruise this summer!
