Description

Every summer, the Seaport Ferry in South Norwalk carries hundreds of hungry passengers to the historic 1868 Sheffield Island Lighthouse for the Norwalk Seaport Association's famous Thursday Clambakes. 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
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.

Sheffield Island with its historic 147-year-old lighthouse, beaches and wildlife refuge offers abundant summer fun for visitors. 

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 clambake dinner, play on the lawns around the lighthouse and just have a good time. The lighthouse tower (currently closed for repairs) provides magnificent views of Long Island Sound and, on a clear day, of the New York City skyline.

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.
