Watch the sun go down over eastern Long Island waters as the East End Seaport Museum & Marine Foundation hosts a sunset cruise this Saturday.

Check-in begins at the seaport museum at 3:30 p.m. Departure for the four to five hour cruise is at 4 p.m.

The itinerary will be determined by the weather and will include a stop at the Orient Long Beach Bar Lighthouse — or Bug Light as it is known in these parts — and other lighthouses.

The replica lighthouse was built in 1990, nearly 30 years after vandals burned the original building to the ground.

The tour includes a boxed lunch of deli food with a beverage. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

Rates are $95 for an adult, $85 for East End Seaport Museum members, Southold Town residents and military members and $60 for children under 18.
