Tour The Landmark Delaware Lighthouse That’s Only Accessible By Boat

Delaware’s coast has a pretty brutal history of wrecking ships and stranding mariners. That’s why the lighthouse system around Cape Henlopen was so important when it was established in the late 1800s. The landmark Breakwater Light likely saved thousands from peril along the foggy Delaware coast. Did you know you can tour this lighthouse today? It’s only accessible via boat — so book your cruise back in time today.
