Archaeo Tours - The Lost Ships
This is an exclusive 1½ hour-long tour with one of the Lighthouse’s archaeologists who make discoveries every summer on the Lost Ships of St. Augustine wrecked off the coast of our nation’s oldest port.
You will hear the dramatic stories of these sunken wrecks and lost dreams, and the archaeologists who bring their secrets to life. You will gain access into parts of the Historic Light Station not available with general admission, including our maritime archaeology laboratory facilities. You will see artifacts that hadn’t been touched by human hands for centuries, in various stages of the tedious cleaning and stabilization procedures undertaken by our laboratory conservators in order to save them for history.
The tour includes a multi-media presentation over viewing the underwater archaeological investigation of Lost Ships off the coast of St. Augustine.
Then you'll also have the opportunity of free time to see our museum exhibits in the historic Keeper’s House and also climb the lighthouse and enjoy the view from 160 feet above ground!
Lost Ships Tours are regularly scheduled for Mondays and Fridays two times per day. With advanced notice we may be able to arrange special tour times outside the regular schedule. Advance reservations are required. No walk-ins.
