The experience
Sheffield Island, with its historic lighthouse, beaches, and wildlife refuge, offers abundant summer fun for visitors.  Board the 45-foot CJ Toth Quest ferry for a cruise to the island.  Then tour the lighthouse, observe wildlife in their natural habitat, hunt for shells along the beach, dine on a picnic lunch, play on the lawns around the lighthouse, and just have a good time.  The lighthouse grounds provide magnificent views of Long Island Sound and, on a clear day, of the New York City skyline.
