  • This was a wonderful stop to make. The tour is short but informative. You can view the oldest continuously operating lighthouse in California, see the living space of the lighthouse keeper, and learn the significance of lighthouses in a historical context. The tour is free, with a suggested donation of $4/adult. The volunteers were knowledgeable and friendly. Lovely views, and even got to see some deer grazing.
  • Fun little lighthouse. Cool to learn a little history of this place
  • Beautiful old lighthouse was trumped by the nasty rude old women that volunteered there. They were extremely unfriendly & made snarky remarks about our family as we walked by them on the 2nd floor of the lighthouse. All in all it was a very disappointing experience.
  • Beautiful location. Great bathrooms.
  • Great little piece of history with a little museum in a beautiful location. Can't go wrong. Free entry but donation encouraged. Very friendly and knowledgeable volunteer docents.
