Sheffield Island Lighthouse

The Norwalk Seaport Association has owned, restored and maintained Sheffield Island Lighthouse since 1986 and is the official US Fish & Wildlife Service Friends group for the Norwalk Islands. Sheffield Island ferry tours are a top Fairfield County CT and Long Island Sound activity, attraction, tourist site, etc.  Great for kids and adults as a sightseeing, day trip, and tourist destination.

From May through September, visitors can board the Norwalk 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 
hunt for shells along the beach, bring along 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.
The tower portion of the lighthouse is closed for renovations. 
No pets permitted on ferry or island.
