A Trip to Gainesville, FL
Florida's IntraCoastal Waterways - Hollywood

Photography by Lee Smith

A recent trip to the Deerfield Beach Lighthouse which is only open a few times a year was a real treat. A beautiful area to photograph and enjoy. We took a 20 minute boat ride from Sands Pier.

The boat schedule to the lighthouse was starting at 9:00 AM and every hour on the hour until 3:00 PM. The boat leaves the Lighthouse to the Sands pier beginning at 9:30 AM and every hour on the half hour until 3:30 PM. They suggested to arrive at the piers 20 minutes before the departure time.  There were  members of Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation Society (HLPS) to register & check you in. I was given a wrist band, and waited for the boat, of course I got there almost an hour early. We boarded for the boat ride to the lighthouse around 9am and enjoyed a slow scenic ride. A current HLPS membership or a $25 PP transportation fee is required.

Bring your food and drink with you – there are no refreshments at the lighthouse, but there is a restroom and a gorgeous beach.
