  • Well done museum in the historic fog signal building adjacent to the impressive lighthouse. The community worked with the Coast Guard to stabilze the structure allowing it to continue as a lighthouse ...  more »
  • Lighthouses have their fascination. So also this wwelcher is also geographically well. The Museum is very interesting and also the view from the tower is breathtaking.

  • A cool place to stop and enjoy. You will have to pay a fee to enter the museum and climb the lighthouse. Binoculars inside to look out to sea. Great information about the history of the lighthouse. Yo...  more »

  • I loved it! The tour was short and sweet. The view up top was amazing!! The tour guide at the top of the lighthouse had all the answers and was extremely knowledgeable about the area and mechanics of the light. You’re welcome to stay at the top as long as another group isn’t there. Because there are so few people per group of the tour you can really get great personal pictures. MUST pick a non foggy day
  • Amazing view from the top of the light house! There is a entrance fee (per person), if you are in group then ask for group booking. To climb up the tower, you need to go for guided tour (entrance fee covers the tour). If you are lucky you may witness whales in the ocean. Binoculars are kept on top of light house & in museum. This is also the location of final race scene in the movie Need for Speed.
  • We stayed overnight and it was a fantastic, relaxing unique experience. I would do this again in a heartbeat. The staff were very friendly and it was not crowded. It was so nice to just wander the grounds and enjoy the ocean. We spent hours watching the sea lions and the birds.
  • Such a nice and peaceful place to walk around and enjoy the amazing view and breeze from the ocean.
  • Amazing views. Great staff. Photo op extravaganza! Well worth the price to climb the lighthouse.
