HARKERS ISLAND, NC Cape Lookout National Seashore is pleased to announce that the next Evening at the Cape programs will take place on Saturday, July 8, Sunday, July 9, and Monday, July 10. 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, and the full-moon rise at your national seashore. “This is a great opportunity to witness your favorite beach under the calm of the moonlit sky,” notes Acting Superintendent Jeff West.
Reservations are required for the Evening at the Cape programs, beginning on Monday, June 26 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. 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.
