Visit the Cape Romain Lighthouse and the Georgetown Lighthouse individually or perhaps consider combining both of these unique lighthouses into one enjoyable personalized boat excursion along the South Carolina coastal lowcountry. Explore parts of the South Carolina coastal area that many visitors never experience. We will travel the Intra-Coastal Waterway and the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge with it's tidal rivers, remote island beaches, abundant marine wildlife, wide variety of shore birds and even the occasional alligator.
Both of these 19th century lights are currently listed on the National Register of historic places and are an important part of our countries history.
The first shots of the Civil War were fired at Fort Sumter in Charleston harbor just south of the Cape Romain light. Shortly after the start of the war confederate troops extinquished the light and removed the lens to prevent it's use by Union forces.
The Georgetown light was used as a lookout station by Confederate forces during the early stages of the war until captured by Union Army. During the conflict the light was badly damaged and when repairs were undertaken after the war the light was heightened to it's present 87 feet..
Coastal South Carolina including Georgetown and the Cape Romain area offers year round opportunities for visitors to experience it's rich and diverse history.
