The Georgetown light is a beautiful light and I can tell you from experience that it is somewhat difficult to get to. When you go on the cruse, they do stop just off shore from the light on both sides of the pier so you can make photos. I just wish we had better photos of it.

If anyone is thinking of visiting, I do have the info on my site. If you are more interested in shelling, go in the morning. If you are more interested in the lighthouse, go on the mid-day or afternoon trip. The lighting will be better.

Funny you post that Barry....I am planning to see that light Labor Day weekend! And, hopefully, re-visit some others.

Stephen, are there any lighthouses of the Hilton Island area of SC easy to see??

Yes, there is.

The Hilton Head RR light is open as far as the grounds are concerned, just call the number on my site and let them know that you are coming and would like to visit. They will give you a "guest" pass to enter the resort area and you can drive right to it.

Also, the Harbour Town light is easy to get to as well. It is located in Sea Pines, and you might be able to find that one on the .net and I have directions posted as well. You have to pay to enter this resort area, I believe it was $5, mainly for parking is what it is for. There are lots of shops and the light is open to climb and has a gift shop at the top as well. Climbing use to be $1.

These are two that I had hoped to be able to revisit this year but it doesn't look like that is going to happen though.

One more thing, the other two SC lights that I have listed on my SC page are located on the Island directly behind Hilton Head to the West. There are people that take you over so if you are interested, contact the Chamber of Commerce and they most likely can get you in touch with the right people. If you do this, please let me know the details.

Yes, I do want to go there!!! But at least I have Stephen's photo so I know what it looks like.

On the good side, at least it's being held safe for now.

We took family vacations to Myrtle Beach for several years, and as much as I wanted to, I could never get down there for that cruise. :(
