Experience Amazing Lighthouse Tours
There is no more wonderful experience than visiting, photographing and, whenever possible, climbing up a lighthouse. Counting the steps to the top, you can imagine the complex life and responsibilities for lighthouse keepers. With each light station visit, you’ll learn about the special circumstances that surrounded keeping the light burning. You’ll develop an appreciation for each lighthouse’s history and discover what makes them special.
Lighthouses were often built in remote locations (on both land and at sea) making some challenging to access, or are active Coast Guard stations closed to the general public. Also, lighthouses are sometimes open seasonally for limited hours. But you’re in luck! Our tours are designed to overcome these obstacles. We’ll arrange access and transportation on vessels to reach our destinations. A tour with the U.S. Lighthouse Society will be an exciting, lifetime experience full of incredible memories for all lighthouse enthusiasts.
