HARKERS ISLAND, NC –Superintendent Pat Kenney is pleased to announce that the next Evening at the Cape Lookout Lighthouse programs will take place on Thursday, September 24, Friday, September 25, and Saturday, September 26. This is an excellent time to come experience a different side of your favorite beach. Watch the sunset and the moon and stars come out over our unlit beaches. Hear stories of the light keepers and experience the lighthouse and island as the keepers did, in the dark of night with only the light of the moon to see by.
Reservations are required for an Evening at Cape Lookout Lighthouse and may be made beginning on Wednesday, September 16, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. To make a reservation, call 252-725-9373.
The cost of the program is $23 (price includes ferry fee) and is non-refundable (weather dependent). There will be one evening ferry trip on each date for all the climbs on that night; the ferry will depart Harkers Island at 7:00 p.m. and return at about 9:30 p.m.
