We were there for 4 days and couldn't manage to get a tour. Not there when hours said. Only offered 3 tours daily at 9, 915, and 930 if someones there. Cool to look at from the beach. It appears to be a working lighthouse.

I'm sorry that you weren't able to climb the lighthouse during your stay. The lighthouse is open 7-days per week at 9, 9:15, and 9:30am weather permitting. We had a very wet winter so I'm not sure if conditions were rainy or foggy during your January trip. We also conduct tours early because the temperature inside the lantern room are far too high during afternoon hours and due to the railing being so low, we don't allow guests on the service balcony.

Tickets as well as other information about the lighthouse and tour status can be received from the visitors center across the street. Please stop by on your next trip into town!
