Alki Point Lighthouse Tours

Alki Pt. Lighthouse, built 1913The Alki Point Lighthouse is a functioning, fully automated aid-to-navigation on an active US Coast Guard site. The Lighthouse is one of eight lighthouses on or near Puget Sound open to visitors. 

Located near Alki Beach in the West Seattle neighborhood, you can see the West Point Light Station in Discovery Park (north), Puget Sound vessel traffic and the Cascade Mountains (west). Mount Rainier (south) can be seen on clear days.

US Coast Guard Auxiliarists and US Coast Guard Active Duty personnel are proud to provide public Lighthouse tours on summer weekends. Due to the nature of the site, tours may sometimes either be shortened or cancelled on short notice. Any closed dates will be listed on this page and also communicated via our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
