Mariner's Day Tours of the Race Point Lightstation!


How would you like to visit the Race Point Lightstation, which sits two miles out in the sand dunes of the Cape Cod National Seashore?  Well, on Sunday, May 18th, from 9am - 2pm, visitors can meet our volunteers for a free ride out to this magnificent location! Climb the 1876 light tower, where one can take in the breathtaking views from up above, as well as tour both the Keeper's House and Whistle House, where there will be light refreshments and gifts available to commemorate your visit.

This tour is free and all proceeds in the gift shop go back to the continual upkeep of this historic lightstation.  Visitors will be able to meet a retired U.S. Coast Guardsman who was instrumental in saving this jewel from ruin almost 20 years ago.  Volunteers will meet you at the Race Point Beach parking lot (located in the Cape Cod National Seashore and just beyond the Provincetown Airport; signage will be posted), where you will be able to catch your ride out to the lighthouse!  See you there!

The Race Point Lighthouse is a chapter of the non-profit, American Lighthouse Foundation and operates overnight stays from May through mid-November with a group of over 70 local volunteers.  


Welcome to
Race Point Light Station
on Outer Cape Cod!


The Race Point properties are maintained by the Cape Cod Chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of dedicated volunteer members whose mission is the restoration and preservation of Race Point Lighthouse, the Keeper's house, the Whistle house, the Oil house, and Wood End and Long Point Lighthouses.

Something everybody could help us with - whether volunteer or guest - is a simple donation. The buildings at Race Point are historic and very expensive to maintain. A donation of ANY amount is deeply appreciated. In fact, the major portion of the restoration at Race Point was done by people making donations of $10 and $20.

Thank you for any amount you are able to help us with!

Most sincerely,

The Volunteer Keepers at Race Point Lighthouse


Whether you are looking to get to a more peaceful location, be at a lighthouse or simply enjoy a taste of Cape Cod, staying at Race Point is an experience unlike any other!


Call Nina and make a reservation to stay at Race Point in 2014.  You won't be disappointed!

Open May-November
