(almost) Full Worm Moon Night Tour CANCELLED

Past Events

This Night Tour has been cancelled due to lack of minimum number of guests

The Point Arena Lighthouse continues its popular Full Moon Night Tours with an (almost) Full Worm Moon Night Tour on Saturday, March 23. Gates open 7:30 p.m., tour starts around 8 p.m. The evening will feature a special presentation about the Light Station’s history and technology, sweet and savory snacks accompanied by champagne or sparkling juice, capped off by a guided “Climb to the Top” tour of the tallest lighthouse on the West Coast under the rising full moon – if the weather cooperates, of course! An etched Point Arena Lighthouse souvenir champagne flute is included in the price of admission for each participant, which is $50 per person. Reservations must be made at least three days in advance of the tour. While the tour is scheduled to coordinate with the full moon, weather conditions may preclude lunar visibility. The tours are conducted regardless of weather conditions, unless the Lighthouse Staff deems them to potentially cause safety issues for the guests. In the event the tour is cancelled, guests will receive a full refund.

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac in Native American and early Colonial times the Full Moon in March was called the Full Worm Moon. The ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This has also been called the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.

The Lighthouse offers Full Moon and (almost) Full Moon Night Tours throughout the year on the Saturday closest to the full moon if it doesn't fall on that day. Check our Calendar of Events for dates and times of all Lighthouse events. For more information or to make a reservation, call the Lighthouse at 707-882-2809, ext. 1 at least three days prior to date of the tour.
