Night Tours Every Full Moon!

Cancelled for April through September due to COVID-19 situation

Join us for the unique experience of climbing the 145 steps to the top of the Lighthouse Tower at night and enjoying an unparalleled view of the full moon – weather permitting, of course!  Night Tours are held most every full moon year round.
