It’s the Harbor Beach Lighthouse!! While still the best known symbol of Harbor Beach, The Harbor Beach Lighthouse sports a brand new look with the recent completion of the Fog Signal building. Beginning June 29, visitors will experience new additions to the Fog Signal building with museum displays and yes, even restroom facilities! Our award winning tours will continue with experienced and knowledgeable tour guides, who will share the complete history of our iconic structure, the break wall and the harbor.
The 2019 Tour Season will be shortened this year to accommodate the tower painting of the lighthouse, which will complete our capital restoration plan for the Harbor Beach Lighthouse. This has been an ongoing, and monumental task. We are so excited to have our Lighthouse in the very best shape possible…for our city and its residents, our guests and for the future. To make this happen, our season will end on Sunday, August 4, 2019. The seven tour days will fill up fast and we encourage you to get your reservations made as soon as possible. We hope to fill each Saturday, beginning on June 29 and continuing through Sunday, August 4. The Sunday date will be new this year due to the Michigan Lighthouse Festival that will be held locally that same weekend.
The tickets are $20 and include round trip transportation to and from the Lighthouse aboard a 31 foot Cherokee from J-Lyn Charters. The boat leaves the Harbor Beach Marina beginning at 9:20 am and then about every 20 minutes with the last boat leaving at 12 noon. Your ticket purchase also includes a $2 discount to the Grice House Museum, located adjacent to the Harbor Beach Marina. There you will see the original 4th order Fresnel Lens (an extraordinary work of art) from the lighthouse along 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!
So check your calendars and reserve your tickets today so you don’t miss this exciting opportunity. We look forward to having you visit…and don’t forget your camera. It is a photographer’s dream. The 360 degree view from the top of the lighthouse is one you will not forget. Tour guides are also happy to help you capture unique photos of this lifetime memory. Reserve your tickets today!
