Directions to View Wickford Harbor Light

Wickford Harbor Lighthouse was located at the entrance to Wickford Harbor. It was torn down in 1930 and was replaced with a skeleton tower. Wickford Harbor Light 1, a skeleton tower on a pile of rocks, is now located on the site. It is best viewed from a boat. Rhode Island Bay Cruises and Save the Bay offers lighthouse cruises that may go near it. They usually run between May and October.
