Point San Luis Lighthouse History Tour for National Lighthouse Day


Docent-led tours of the Point San Luis Lighthouse are held every Saturday at 12pm, 1pm and 2pm. The tour is $20 per person and reservations are required by calling Lighthouse Keepers at (805) 540-5771. 

The Port San Luis Harbor District purchased the Light Station in 1992 from the Federal government to preserve and open this spectacular point to the public as a historic and recreational park. The District comissioned and partnered with the non-profit Point San Luis Lighthouse Keepers to restore and operate the facilities for the public benefit. Keepers volunteers have put in over 65,000 hours of labor toward the restoration. The Keepers and Harbor District have partnered to bring in $1.5 million for the restoration and another $1.3 million for the newly built one-lane road that permits public access of the Keepers vans, and now via the historic trolley.
