Tour Summary: Excursion starts with a ferry ride as a foot passenger from Cape May to Lewes, where your special water taxi awaits on the Finger Pier next to where the ferry docks. Once on board, you'll receive a 90 minute narrated tour that cruises north into the Delaware Bay to visit one of the most historic lighthouses on the Eastern Shore, the East End Lighthouse, aka Breakwater Lighthouse. Built in 1885, East End Lighthouse holds many otherworldly tales, and living history characters garbed in period dress from the Lewes Historical Society will be your guide through time.
