Point Cabrillo Whale Festival Lens Tours
Join us on the first weekend in March for two days of Lens Tours to the top of our historic 1909 Lighthouse! From 10 am – 4 pm on March 7 and March 8, we’ll be offering tours to the Lens Room of the Point Cabrillo Light Station.
These tours are only offered a few times a year and are a treat to experience. You’ll have excellent views and enticing stories of the lightkeepers that lived on the grounds as you climb the ladders to the top.
Tours typically take about 45 minutes altogether, and a new group goes up every 10-15 minutes! You’ll stop on each floor and learn fascinating facts from our excellent volunteer docents.
Point Cabrillo Lightkeepers Association (PCLK) volunteer docents will highlight Light Station history and local culture with visitor presentations at the Lighthouse and other locations in the State Historic Park. Weather permitting, docents will also lead walks to nearby Frolic Cove and relate the story of the clipper brig Frolic, wrecked off the cove in July 1850 bound from China to San Francisco with a valuable cargo of Chinese merchandise for the Gold Rush miners and their families.
