HARKERS ISLAND, NC – Cape Lookout National Seashore is pleased to announce that the next Evening at the Cape Lookout Lighthouse programs will take place on Thursday, July 21, Friday, July 22, and Saturday, July 23. Bring your own flashlight and experience the island and the lighthouse as the keepers did, in the dark of night. Hear stories of the light keepers, watch the sunset and moon and stars come out onto unlit beaches of the National Seashore. According to Superintendent Patrick Kenney, “this is a great opportunity to discover a different side to your favorite beach!”

Reservations are required for the Evening at the Cape programs, beginning on July 14 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 Evening at the Cape program begins on Harkers Island promptly at 7:15 p.m. under the ferry dock canopy. Please allow enough time to pick up your ferry tickets from the ticket window ahead of time. All participants will travel together on a single ferry that departs shortly after the program begins.
