Saturday is your last opportunity this season to tour the restored 3rd order Fresnel lens. Once you ascend the stairs and emerge onto the platform, it’s hard to remember that you’re on the lens tour. The view from this vantage point is like none other. Once you catch your breath, turn around and fix your gaze on the magnificent lantern that, even today, acts as a guiding light for ships cruising the California coast. Learn more about the history of the station and the people who lived here on the Point Cabrillo website.
This is a family-friendly activity, but children must be at least 42 inches tall to go on the tour. There is a ½ mile walk to the lighthouse from the parking area.
Date: Saturday, September 22
Time: 10 am – 4 pm
