While we certainly hope that we can show off all the new restoration work, main tower repainting and exhibits in the fog signal building by restarting our lighthouse tours in summer 2021 with Covid vaccines, some lingering uncertainty remains about just how safe it will be to start small group events by next June in many areas of life.
Visit the best known symbol of Harbor Beach, Michigan?the Harbor Beach Lighthouse?up close and personal. Experienced and knowledgeable tour guides will share interesting information about all aspects of the lighthouse, breakwall, and harbor. Tours are conducted on Saturdays from the middle of June ?through the end of September. The boat, a 31 foot Cherokee, from J-Lyn Fishing Charters leaves the Harbor Beach Marina starting at 9:20am and then about every 20 minutes until 40 minutes before closing time. DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT forget your camera. The 360 degree view from the top of the lighthouse is one you will not forget. The best photo opp of the day is on the gallery level of the lighthouse, taken through the porthole. Tour guides are happy to help you with this once in a lifetime memory. Tickets are $20 each and also include a $2 discount to the to the Harbor Beach Grice House Museum, which houses the original Fresnel Lens from the lighthouse. The Grice House Museum is located adjacent to the marina on Ritchie Drive and provides visitors with a comprehensive view of the history of Harbor Beach and its residents. Two admissions for the price of one… and both are unique opportunities that Harbor Beach is proud to share with you!
