Well...we got to see it.

We saw it from a boat so it's not like you can actually tour the lighthouse. Control has been taken over by Homeland Security which now controls all US light houses. We were told we could not actually tour the light house but it's nice to look at from a distance.

Wow! What an Experience
Apr. 2018 • Couples
You travel about an hour by boat with a naturalist across Winyah Bay to the barrier islands at the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy the dolphins and many water fowl as you hear about the history of the Bay and the sailing ships that frequented the area in the 1700 and 1800s. You can see the barrier island that houses the Georgetown Light House quite a bit from actually landing. It is exciting to see it loom on the horizon and then get larger and larger. You can begin to "see" the ancient mariners sailing into the bay and fighting the winds and waves with the aid of the lighthouse. Fascinating.

Once on shore, the shelling is wonderful as this is a barrier island so not often visited. This is an exciting excursion for adults and children alke - don't miss it.

Serene setting

The Georgetown light is only accessible by boat so the beach there is not mobbed with people and litter. There are some tour boats that go out of Front Street so there is a way for tourists to see it. Beautiful light with much history behind it. Worth the trip out, just make sure you understand tides before you go. If you want further history the Maritime Museum on Front Street is a great resource.

Beautiful!

We recently took the Shelling and Lighthouse boat tour through Rover Tours. The boat tour goes by the Georgetown Lighthouse and the lighthouse is beautiful. Built in the early 1800s, it is such a great piece of history to still be standing and in use.

A historical landmark

Access to the lighthouse is by boat as there are no roads to this lighthouse. Tours are available. This lighthouse is still in use & the light shines every night.
