    • Sheffield Island & Lighthouse
    The Norwalk Seaport Association has owned, restored and maintained Sheffield Island Lighthouse since 1986 and is the official U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Friends group for the Norwalk Islands.





    PLEASE BE PATIENT WHILE THE PAGE LOADS

    Sheffield Island with its historic 148-year-old lighthouse, beaches and wildlife refuge offers abundant summer fun for visitors. 

    From May through September, visitors can board the Seaport Association's 45-foot C.J. Toth catamaran for a cruise to the island then tour the lighthouse, observe wildlife in their natural habitat in the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge, hunt for shells along the beach, dine on a picnic lunch, play on the lawns around the lighthouse and just have a good time.
    The lighthouse is open to visitors for daily tours, however, the tower section of the lighthouse is closed for renovations.


         

    Join us for one of the most exciting tours that the Norwalk Harbor Islands area has to offer! During this unforgettable adventure tour of Sheffield Island and Lighthouse, you'll step directly from the boat into the past. Sheffield Island is located in the outer reaches of Norwalk Harbor providing unique views of the city and the surrounding waterways.

    During your time on the island, you may want to enjoy a picnic lunch you brought along and take in the spectacular view of the harbor from its most recognized gateway.

    Note: - Sheffield Island is a rocky outcrop with rolling terrain and the docking facilities do not meet ADA regulations. Every effort has been made to minimize non-compliance. The gangway leading from the dock to the island is wide enough to accommodate a standard wheelchair. The gangway incline (steepness) is determined by the height of the tide; at low tide it is steeper than at high tide. Due to liability concerns, the Sheffield Island staff is disallowed to assist with lifting or pushing a wheelchair or stroller. It will be important for the physically challenged to travel with a companion abled to assist them. 

    -Tickets are non-refundable and cannot be rescheduled, unless tour is canceled by the Norwalk Seaport Association (i.e. in the event of severe weather). 
    -All climbers must be at least 8 years old or 50 inches tall to be eligible to climb the tower (closed for renovations)
    -Please wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes with a closed heel or back strap to keep the shoes on the feet. Flip-flops are not allowed due to safety concerns.

    Your boat leaves from the Sheffield Island Lighthouse dock located at the corner of North Water Street and Washington Street in Historic South Norwalk. Parking is available adjacent to the dock and the Norwalk Maritime Center Garage.

    • When making reservations, leave contact information that will be available for day of trip. We may need to contact you if there is a change due to weather conditions.
    • Ticketing fees applied to all reservations.
    • Tickets are non refundable unless there is a weather cancellation.

A true New England dining experience, the evening allows participants to dine in the festive tented pavilion on the lighthouse lawn, with tours of the lighthouse itself included in the cost. Roundtrip cruise and dinner is either $65 or $79 per person, depending on entree. Advance registration only
