Come Explore the Historic East End Lighthouses

Welcome Aboard!

The East End Seaport Museum wishes to welcome you aboard our lighthouse cruises.  Cruises offer views of the famous offshore lighthouses of Southold Town, including the iconic Long Beach Bar (Bug) Light, the seafaring symbol of the North Fork.

During the longer Evening, and Super Cruises, the tour vessel will stop next to each lighthouse providing photo opportunities along with complete narrative histories of each structure presented by our onboard experts. “Bug” light tours offer the additional exclusive opportunity to explore the interior of the lighthouse.

Our lighthouse cruises and tours include a narrated guided tour. Our main guide is Bob Allen. We occasionally host guest narrators.

Bob Allen was brought up in Greenport and is a descendant of a lighthouse keeper.  His great-grandfather, William H. Follett, was stationed at Montauk Point, Cedar Island and the Long Beach Bar (Bug) Light stations from 1912 until 1940.  Bob’s father, Bill, quit school at a young age to help his grandfather at Bug Light. When Bob is narrating a tour he also shares stories and photos of his family when they were on these lighthouses. Become a friend on Facebook
