Cape Hatteras Lighthouse closes on Oct. 8th for the 2012 season

Columbus Day, October 8th, will mark the last day to climb the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse for the 2012 season. Tickets can be purchased on site the day of the climb, starting at 8:15am. Tickets are $7 for adults and $3.50 for senior citizens (62 or older), children (11 and under and at least 42″ tall), and those holding a National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Access Pass. This time of year, climbs are made every 10 minutes between the hours of 9am and 4:30pm.

Be sure to come prepared! The climb to the top consists of 248 spiral stairs, which is the equivalent of a 12 story building.

“Built in 1870, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse protects one of the most hazardous sections of the Atlantic Coast. Offshore of Cape Hatteras, the Gulf Stream collides with the Virginia Drift, a branch of the Labrador Current from Canada. These powerful current forces southbound ships into a dangerous twelve-mile long sandbar called the Diamond Shoals. Hundreds and possibly thousands of shipwrecks in this area have given it the reputation as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic“‘. -NPS

Join one of 120,000 people to date who have climbed the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse this year!

*The lighthouse will reopen for the 2013 season on Friday, April 19th.

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Full Moon Tour

This Saturday, September 29th, full moon tours of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse will be available! This is your chance to climb the 257-step staircase while park rangers provide interesting stories and tales of the lighthouse keeper’s duties. You will also be able to view the light up close and hear about how it operated in the past and how it works today. Weather permitting, you’ll have a bird’s eye view of the beam of light reaching out to sea and the reflection of the moon over the Atlantic. It’s truly a once in a lifetime experience!

The National Park Service will be offering two tours that evening. There will be one at 7pm and another at 8pm. Each tour is limited to 30 people and tickets must be purchased in person, starting Thursday, September 17th at the lighthouse ticket booth between the hours of 8:15 and 4:40pm. Tickets are $7 for adults and $3.50 for children (11 and under), as well as seniors (62 and older). Be sure to get your tickets early!

Just a few guidelines for the climb to the top…
1. Be sure to bring a handheld flashlight. There are no lights inside the lighthouse.
2. All participants are required to be 42 inches tall and must be able to climb the steps on their own.
3. Children 11 years of age and under must be accompanied by an adult (16 years of age or older).
4. For safety reasons, all participants must climb and descend with the group.
5. Keep in mind that the lighthouse can be challenge to climb…It’s tall, dark, and often hot and humid.
