Come Experience the Nation’s Oldest Light Station
The only tours that lands on Little Brewster Island!
Established in 1716, the Boston Light is the first and oldest lighthouse station in the country. During the American Revolution, Boston Light was damaged by attacks of patriot militia, and later destroyed by British troops as they left Boston Harbor. The current tower was built in 1783 and is the last light station in the country to be staffed by a US Coast Guard light keeper.
Our three-hour adventure
begins with a boat cruise and a narrated tour on a comfortable vessel
through Boston Harbor Islands, where you will experience the geology
and rich maritime history of the islands with a National Park Service
ranger. Guests disembark at Little
Brewster to visit the first and
oldest lighthouse station in the United States, and the last to retain
a Coast Guard keeper - Boston Light.
Climb the 76 steps up Boston Light's tower and see the historic Fresnel lens. Enjoy this unique and unforgettable view of Boston Harbor from its most recognized gateway, accompanied by a National Park Service Ranger and the U.S. Coast Guard auxiliary.
