Reserve Your Yaquina Head Lighthouse Tour Ahead of Time ONLINE!!
Newport – Touring the interior of Oregon’s tallest lighthouse and climbing more than 100 steps to view the first order Fresnel Lens is a favorite activity for many Yaquina Head visitors. It’s so popular an activity that tours for the day sometimes fill within the first 30 minutes during the busy summer months.
Starting April 6th, visitors will be able to make online reservations for lighthouse tours prior to their visit. On the Recreation.gov website, visitors will be able to find tickets for the 11, 12, 1, and 2 o’clock tour times offered during July, August, and September.
These historical, interpretive tours of the lighthouse continue to be included in the park’s price of admission, but there will be an additional $1.50/ticket transaction fee charged by the website for the opportunity to register early and ensure a limited spot.
