Following the original 135 cast-iron steps, you will reach the lantern room underneath a green metal structure on the top. Admire the artfully wrought landing brackets of this self-supporting staircase cast in San Francisco and get your camera ready for some fabulous panoramas.

  • The lighthouse has been a favorite since I was a kid, and I love that local folks have regained control over it so folks can explore a bit of what lighthouses represented for the Pacific coast.  more »
  • We came here really just to see the lighthouse, and were delighted to find that they offer tours! Our host led us up the tower, telling us all about the history of the lighthouse and surrounding areas...  more »
  • Nice little stop with interesting history and of course a photo op for the husband! If you have time for a tour do by all means!  more »

  • 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.
