Night Tours Every Full Moon!
Join us for the unique experience of climbing the 145 steps to the top of the Lighthouse Tower at night and enjoying an unparalleled view of the full moon – weather permitting, of course! Night Tours are held every full moon year round.
*NOTE: Tours will take place regardless of the weather conditions if the minimum number of guests sign up. Guests understand that visibility could be limited due to fog, rain, etc. and there is no guarantee that the full moon will be visible during the tour.
On Sunday, November 19 at 4 p.m. Nik Epanchin will present a brief history of the Point Reyes Lighthouse. His presentation will also include northern elephant seals with an emphasis on their life cycle. Since 1981 these seals have been hauling out, pupping and mating at the Point Reyes National Seashore annually during the winter months
