With the July date just announced, you can sign up for a once in a lifetime experience to climb the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse under a full moon. The night will be filled with stories of the keepers of old, close up looks of the working light in the lantern room and spectacular views. Watch the newly risen moon as it reflects off the Atlantic Ocean while you stand in the salt air on the balcony.
Saturday, July 12 two tours will be given, one at 8:30 and one at 9:30. Ticket sales will start on Thursday, July 10, 2014 at the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse from 8:15 a.m. to 5:40 p.m and tickets must be purchased on site.
Tickets are $8 per adult, and $4 for children (11 and under) and seniors (62 and older). Children are welcome on the climb and must be over 42 inches tall and able to climb the 257 steps on their own.
