Earn a FREE annual 3-night stay for yourself and up to 11 guests at the light station by becoming a superintendent of lighthouses!

The COASTAL COMMANDERS membership track includes our custom-designed Earn Your Stripes program and follows the actual ranks of the light keepers in the United States Lighthouse Service….beginning with 4th Assistant Keeper and ending with the Superintendent of Lighthouses.  The Earn Your Stripes ranks are based more on volunteerism and involvement within the organization than on donation level.

When White Shoal Light is fully restored and open to guests for overnight stays, it will be one of the most unique destinations in the world!  With our very short season of operation, we anticipate  having a waiting list of people from around the world who want to book stays (we are already receiving requests).  White Shoal Light is going to cost a small fortune to restore and then to maintain.  That, coupled with logistics of having guests comfortably hosted on such a remote structure, will demand premium prices for overnight stays.  Unfortunately, this will make an overnight stay out of reach for many people.  This is exactly the reason we designed the EARN YOUR STRIPES program….to be able to give passionate individuals a shot at earning free stays at White Shoal Light!  That doesn’t mean it is a giveaway….it will take lots of effort to earn your rank within the organization.  Keep in mind also that we can only give away so many free nights a season and still remain in operation.  Therefore, there will be a very limited number of the highest ranks available.  GET IN EARLY!
