Cape Ann Harbor Tours Lighthouse Tour From Anthony Marks

Hi Joey
Took the Cape Ann Harbor Tours, lighthouse tour aboard the King
Eider. It’s a  two and a half hour tour that goes around the cape. It
passes six lighthouses and is narrated. The tour is very scenic to say
the least. Everyone had a good time and was friendly. Its a great tour
for visitors as well as locals.
These are a few of the pictures i took.
