About this event


Capacity is limited to 48 passengers.

The Norwalk Seaport Association has owned, restored and maintained Sheffield Island Lighthouse since 1986 and is the official U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Friends group for the Norwalk Islands.

This three (3) hour excursion begins with a narrated tour of the Norwalk harbor and its three historic Norwalk lighthouses, ending with a one hour stop at Sheffield Island Lighthouse.

Sheffield Island with its historic lighthouse, beaches and wildlife refuge offers abundant summer fun for visitors.

From May through September, visitors can board the Seaport Association's 45-foot C.J. Toth Catamaran for a harbor cruise ending with a one hour stop at Sheffield Island. Tour the Lighthouse, observe wildlife in their natural habitat in the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge, hunt for shells along the beach, dine on a picnic lunch, play on the lawns around the Lighthouse, and simply have a good time. During this unforgettable adventure tour of Sheffield Island and Lighthouse, you'll step directly from the boat into the past.

The Lighthouse is open to visitors during the 2021 season subject to COVID protocols. The tower section of the Lighthouse is currently closed at this time. We invite our guests to use our newly installed antique telescope to capture magnificent views of the city and Sound.

Round trip time is approximately 3 hours.

Join us for one of the most exciting tours that the Norwalk Harbor Islands area has to offer! Sheffield Island is located in the outer reaches of Norwalk Harbor providing unique views of the city and the surrounding waterways.
