Early-Morning Docent-led tour of historic Thomas Point Lighthouse
Interested in an insider's look at the iconic Thomas Point lighthouse? We'll assemble at the Annapolis Maritime Museum at 8:30 a.m. to board a special passenger launch that will ferry us to the lighthouse. (The launch departs at 9 a.m.) A knowledgeable docent will guide us through the refurbished interior of the structure. You'll get a close look at the beacon itself and at the living quarters used by the lightkeeper and his family from 1875 through its takeover by the Coast Guard. It’s a fascinating glimpse of maritime history. The light was purchased by a private-public partnership in 2004. Cost of the tour—including the boat-ride each way—is $70 a person. To sign up, click on the CONTINUING EDUCATION tab on the CAPCA website (www.capca.net), scroll down to the listing for the lighthouse tour, and pay online by credit card. There are separate signups for the 9 a.m. tour and the noontime tour.

Sunset dinner cruise on board the tall-ship schooner Mystic Whaler
This one is a real treat—and a family event! We’ll get under way at Annapolis City Dock at 5 p.m. and return to port at 8 p.m. The cruise will give you a daytime look at the portion of the Bay around Annapolis, enable you watch the sun set while you’re sailing, and return to port under a (hopefully) starry sky. It’s a great way to meet other CAPCA members and their families. Dinner is included!
