“Nice little museum.”

Cape Lookout Lighthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The diamond pattern was to be used on the lighthouse at Diamond Shoals, but this lighthouse got the wrong paintjob. It looks like nobody wished to cover over their mistake so - the diamonds stayed. Anchorage is a bit tricky. Current and a rapid drop-off from 4' to 35'. Using enough scope and not too much swing is an issue. Holding is OK with enough scope. Channels move so use the markers.

The same as I wrote about the seashore. We never have problems to find a parkingspace, it is so clean, the people who work there are so nice and helpful, you need to see it.

Takes some time to get there via Beaufort but a great trip.
Make reservations for both the Lighthouse through the NPS first as well as the boat ride through private tour vendors
