chatham lighthouse tours photoFor more than two centuries, mariners have relied on beacons from Chatham to safely navigate the treacherous waters around the 'elbow' of Cape Cod.

Please Note: There will be no tours of the lighthouse itself this season (2020), only the grounds, including the boat. There will be Auxiliarists on site to lead the tours as usual.

Located on the grounds of Coast Guard Station Chatham, Chatham Light has a long and
rich history and is available to tour during select months. Due to maintenance issues, the
lighthouse itself is closed, but tours are conducted on the grounds.

Chatham Light, as you see it today, is one of two lighthouse towers that stood here in the mid-1800s. In 1923, the second tower was dismantled and transported up the coast to Eastham, where it became 'Nauset Lighthouse'

Chatham Lighthouse is perhaps the most often-photographed of all Cape Cod lighthouses, and one of the most popular for visitors thanks to its beautiful setting overlooking Lighthouse Beach, one of the most spectacular beaches in Chatham.
