Following the original 135 cast-iron steps, you will reach the lantern room underneath a green metal structure on the top.

  • Awesome tour, found the history very interesting, all built by men and women using just block and tackle, amazing. What a majestic view of the area. LOVED IT
  • The tour to the top is $5 per person. Our tour guide was full of interesting facts and history about the lighthouse. It was fun getting to see the lens up close and learn all about the light station.
  • You can't visit Westport and NOT check out the tallest lighthouse in the state. Friendly volunteers have some great stories and the view is worth the walk to the top.
  • Cute little lighthouse in a very quiet town. If you're in the area this is definitely worth checking out.
  • I loved the experience, it was low key but rich with history. The volunteers were really kind even though it was the end of the day, we had a great experience.
