Event Type Hudson River Estuary Exploration/Environmental Education Description View the Kingston Rondout Lighthouse and the Esopus Meadows Lighthouse the way mariners do: from the water! Experience stunning views of the Esopus Meadows and Rondout Lighthouses on the Hudson River during this popular two-hour cruise! These are two of the remaining seven lighthouses on the Hudson River. Each has a long history as a beacon of light for mariners and home to lighthouse keepers and their families. Marking the entrance to Rondout Creek (Kingston, NY), the Rondout Lighthouse is a beautiful yellow brick structure. Completed in 1915 it is still a working navigational light. Located off of Black Creek in the Town of Esopus, the Esopus Meadows Lighthouse warned mariners away from the "Esopus Meadows", a shallow marshy area that the lighthouse is named after. Finished in 1871, it is the only wooden lighthouse left on the Hudson River. Please note: On this sightseeing cruise, Solaris does not stop at either lighthouse. To visit the interiors of the Rondout Lighthouse please register for the Rondout Lighthouse Tour . Organization Hosting the Event Hudson River Maritime Museum Phone Number 8453380071
