Owner description: An interesting and still important lighthouse that can be visited but not climbed. (NOTE: The lighthouse is currently under construction, and is expected to re-open in summer 2013, with the ability to be climbed for the first time)

Please reserve your tours or else you'll either be left waiting for the next tour or miss out completely like we did. But we really enjoyed the trip out there and the great views. It's paradise and great ppl.

loved the surroundings, could not go up as it requires a guided tour of 45 minutes, other lighthouses , you pay and are free to climb and view at your leisure.This is a scam. We just wanted to go up and view and were not allowed even if we payed full.

What a fun stop this was.... the Lighthouse is now open and we walked the 200+ steps to the top and it was well worth it!! (Fortunately it was a 'no humidity' day and unseasonably low temperatures... not sure we would do the climb on a hot day! ) The gentleman who led our tour was a delight and obviously loved his work. Another great piece of history and highly recommended as a must see.

Bodie Island Lighthouse is beautiful. It is well maintained and the grounds are pretty for pictures. The staff on hand were very nice.

Sadly, we were too late to get on the tour. So be proactive about getting on a tour early. We understand it's the first time they've had it open to the public since the 1800's. The grounds are nicely kept and friendly visitor center staff. Don't miss the herd of turtles in a pond on the right as you are driving in!
