We took this tour on a Saturday morning. Very informative albeit long, walk is scenic and worthwhile if you love taking pictures. We'd highly recommend it!
Was about to book our Hearst Castle tour and my husband realized that we could take this tour at 10 am instead. It was well worth the time! Not only are the volunteers a wealth of information about the light house & its history but also well versed about the local flora/fauna & wildlife. At $10 you can't go wrong!
A 2 Hour tour for $10. Comprehensive and impressive. This place was off limits when I went to Cal Poly in the 70's. I always wanted to see it and 30 years later, I finally did. In the off season the group was small, but, all the better. Only tuesday, thursday, and saturday. Meet at the former Piedras Blancas motel... More
Built in the mid-1870s, currently under restoration and management by the BLM, we were fortunate to get the last available reservations for a night tour (offered only two times a year) on Oct. 19th. Docents in period dress reenact life as it would have been. We arrived later than our appointed time, but were allowed to join the next group... More
This is a great place to visit. Follow what the website says about visitor hours. You must meet at the abandoned Motel for ticketing at 10:00 am Saturday and from there you caravan back to the locked lighthouse gates for entry. The tour guide Abel and his wife Toni were fantastic. They were extremly knowledgeable about the area and passionate... More
I've been to Piedras Blancas as part of my highway-one trip down to LA. I stopped by to watch these beautiful livings sunbathe, sleep, play with sand and even yell and fight each other. However, I visited the place on August, and at that time there were only male elephant seals. If you have a chance to visit the place... More
My fiance and I went to Piedras Blancas Lighthouse during the summer and it was the perfect time to go. First you meet at a vacant inn about a mile up the road, and the tour guides then guide you to the Lighthouse. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and give you ample time for pictures. They also provide binoculars... More
I recommend that you do some research before you try to visit. This is a very interesting place to visit with a guide but I don't know that it's interesting at all if you just do a drive by. My sixth grade teacher was a guide here so I heard stories and find it an interesting place because if that.
Watching the seals was most exciting, and we could hear them as we drove up. A must see as you drive up or down the coast!
