Approximately 60 minutes. The Beavertail Lighthouse stands as a majestic sentry at the entrance to Narragansett Bay. Though a guiding light for centuries of shipping and a strategic resource during many conflicts, it now stands vigil over a vast array of recreational activities from delightful sunset picnics, to scuba divers, to seriously intense sailboat races. Come stand beside this landmark guard post, breathing in the freshest air, feeling the stability of ageless rocks and listening to the dynamics of the surf. Board our new, comfortable touring shuttle at the East Ferry Dock and relax during the ride to the Lighthouse while listening to descriptive narratives of the rich history of Conanicut Island. Take a break for photos, a short walk or to visit the Lighthouse museum. Monday through Thursday–10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday–10:30 a.m. and Noon.Book Now
