Alki Point Lighthouse Tours


Sorry to have missed you but the Light House is closed for the season.  The light continues to watch properly and we will be there to greet you Memorial Day Weekend 2019.


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 are proud to provide public Lighthouse tours on summer dates. Due to the nature of the site, tours may sometimes either be shortened or canceled on short notice. Any closed dates will be listed on this page and also communicated via our Facebook account. Please note that the schedule for 2018 has changed from prior years and that tours will only be available on Sundays.
