Take a tour of this historic lightship in southern Delaware.

The Lightship Overfalls (LV-118) is located west of Cape Henlopen in Lewes, Delaware. This is a unique ship that acted as a moving lighthouse, and it is a National Historic Landmark. Even though it is located in Delaware, it was utilized on the east end of Long Island Sound, south of Cape Cod, and the Boston Harbor between 1938 and 1972. Lightship Overfalls was one of two lightships constructed in America in the 20th-century, and it was reconstructed and refurbished from 2006 to 2010.

This ship is open seasonally from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. You can take a guided tour Thursday through Sunday from 10 am to 3:30 pm. If you're here in the fall, you can still tour Lightship Overfalls Friday through Sunday (same times) through mid-October. Admission is $5 for anyone ages 15+ and free for all others. If you're interested in maritime history, be sure to visit the Lightship Overfalls.
