HARKERS ISLAND, NC – Cape Lookout National Seashore is pleased to announce this year’s evening programs of the Cape Lookout Lighthouse. The first set of programs will take place on Thursday, June 21, Friday, June 22, and Saturday, June 23. Bring your flashlight and experience South Core Banks and the lighthouse as the Light Keepers did, in the dark of night. Hear stories of days gone by, watch the sunset into night at your national seashore. “This is a great opportunity to witness your favorite beach under the calm of the starry sky,” notes Superintendent Jeff West.
Reservations are required for the Evening at the Cape programs, beginning on Monday, June 11 at 10 a.m., at www.recreation.gov. Each of the three tour nights will be able to accommodate a maximum of 40 total participants.
The cost of the program is $28 (price includes ferry fee) and is non-refundable (weather dependent). The Evening at the Cape program begins on Harkers Island promptly at 7:15 p.m. sharp, under the ferry dock canopy. Please be sure to arrive early, ahead of the program start time, to check your party in with the Ranger. All participants will travel together on a single ferry that departs shortly after the program begins. The ferry will return to Harkers Island at approximately 10:00 p.m.
Children joining the climb must be at least 44-inches tall and able to climb the steps on their own. Children 12 years of age and younger must be accompanied by an adult (16 or older). Footwear is required as well. For more information, go to: http://go.nps.gov/eveningatcape.htm.
