Pomham Rocks by Sunset, Moonlight and Daylight


Pomham Rocks Lighthouse will open June 10, fully restored inside and out. The opening celebration at Squantum Association, with trips to the island lighthouse, has been completely sold out. But there is still an opportunity for you to see the historic landmark.
The Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse are selling tickets for three unique experiences – a sunset cruise, a moonlight cruise and a daytime cruise to the island. Three winners of the Cruises to Pomham Rocks Lighthouse Raffle will have an opportunity to bring a party of 10 people to Pomham Rocks Lighthouse for one of these fun-filled adventures. Guests will cruise on the Lady Pomham and Captain Joe Estrella will provide a narrated tour. Visit the newly renovated historic Lighthouse. Bring your own refreshments for an exclusive picnic. A grill, table and chairs are available on the island.
Raffle tickets can be obtained by sending a check, made payable to Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse, to Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse, c/o 81 Harris Street, Riverside, RI 02915. Include your name, address and phone number on your check. Call 401-433-3463 with any questions.
Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25. The drawing will take place at the opening celebration on June 10. Proceeds from the raffle will be used to maintain the Lighthouse.
Built in 1871, Pomham Rocks Lighthouse is the last surviving lighthouse in upper Narragansett Bay. It is located just 200 yards from the East Providence shoreline and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Lighthouse is a New England landmark and a symbol of East Providence's maritime heritage.
