Tour of the Port San Luis Lighthouse -- Debbie Foughty
Tuesday, September 19, 2017 10am - 12pm

Meet At Lighthouse Parking Lot in Avila Beach

$25 for LLCC members, $30 for non-members

What was life like for a lighthouse keeper and family in the 1890's?  You'll find out when you join us on a tour of the Point San Luis Lighthouse.  Our adventure begins when we board a charming old world trolley and take the winding road to the Lighthouse.  At each curve another scene will greet us - Avila Bay, the yacht harbor, Harford Pier, and the wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean.

At the Light Station we will learn the secrets of the grounds, the restored  Victorian-style home and other buildings, the work of the many volunteers who are responsible for the wonderful restoration, and the history of this special place during this docent-led tour. You won't believe the quality of the work done!
You will also learn about  the critical role that federal lighthouses played to help ships navigate our dangerous coast in a pre-radio and pre-satellite age.

After the tour, it's time for lunch.  We encourage you to bring your own water and a sack lunch which you may enjoy while experiencing the beautiful coastal vistas.


The Point San Luis Light House Keepers is a non-profit organization whose purpose is the restoration, preservation, and operation of the historic Point San Luis Lighthouse Station. It was formed in 1995, and has completed over 75,000 hours of volunteer labor in the completion of the restoration of the Headkeepers Quarters, Fog Signal Building, Coast Guard Duplex, and other structures on site. Debbie Foughty is a very knowledgeable volunteer.

Directions to the Lighthouse Parking Lot:  the parking lot is at the entrance to "Wild Cherry Canyon" directly across from Port San Luis Beach/Dog Beach.  Take Avila Beach Drive and continue past the town of Avila Beach and over the bridge towards Port San Luis Harbor and Harford Pier.  wild cherry Canyon is about 1/2 mile after the bridge on the non-beach/right hand side.  Look for the 'tour Parking' banner, with the big blue arrow on the fence at the parking lot entrance.

The parking lot gate does not have a sensor, and may cause damage to your vehicle if it closes while you are driving through. Please wait for the gate attendant to waive you through before proceeding into the parking area. Your vehicle will, occasionally, share the parking area with cows, horses, and other vehicles or personnel not related to the Point San Luis Lighthouse. Park at your own risk.
