Event Details

Join Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses on Saturday, September 21, 2024,, aboard the M/V Granite State for the most extensive lighthouse cruise in this area! The popular annual “Five Lighthouse Cruise” cruise leaves Rye Harbor State Marina at 8:30 a.m. and will return at 1:00 p.m.

The cruise will pass close by White Island Light, Boon Island Light, Cape Neddick “Nubble” Light, Whaleback Light, and Portsmouth Harbor Light, along with great views of the Isles of Shoals, southern coastal Maine, Portsmouth, and the Piscataqua River.

The cruise leaves from Rye Harbor State Marina on Route 1A (1870 Ocean Boulevard) in Rye, New Hampshire. There is a large parking lot ($5 fee) at the marina. The cruise will be narrated by lighthouse historian/author Jeremy D’Entremont and there will be a raffle with great prizes. There is a snack bar on board the vessel.

We ask that you plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the cruise. There is a large parking lot at the Rye Harbor State Marina, and the State of NH charges a $5 parking fee. You will be checked in on the dock before you board the cruise.

In the event that the cruise has to be canceled due to the weather, we will make every effort to notify everyone as early as possible by email. A cancellation notice will be posted on our website (portsmouthharborlighthouse.org) and on our Facebook page. If a cruise has to be canceled due to weather or sea conditions, the purchase price will be refunded in full. Otherwise, cruise tickets are non-refundable.
