Cape Water Tours and Taxi is pleased to present the East End Lighthouse Tour. During this narrated tour, passengers learn about the rich maritime history of this impressive structure and get to walk around and through it to explore and photograph it up close. Passengers can enjoy about 20 minutes of narration on the way to and from the East End Lighthouse plus time to disembark for a closer look inside.
This infamous beacon was placed permanently on the east end of the breakwater at Cape Henlopen in April 1885. Since that time, the East End Lighthouse has stood firmly through everything the Atlantic Coast could throw at it. Today, it and the Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse, are the treasures seen by visitors to Delaware when exploring the Southern Delaware coastal region.
The East End Lighthouse will provide visitors and residents with the historical perspective of the lighthouse and the surrounding area. Simultaneously, they will experience the pleasure of a vacation activity, exposing them to the panoramic views of the Lewes shoreline while enjoying a comfortable, safe cruise on the calm and beautiful waters of our Delaware Bay.
