I would highly recommend going on this tour. The Banyon trees surrounding it are amazing. There are about 140 steps to get to the top, but once you're there, the view is amazing. Interesting history of the lighthouse too.

great exercise, beautiful view, lots of interesting history, and you can see your house if within 4 miles. (Florida doesn't have a lot of big hills!)

After driving this many times while visiting, we took the time to tour. It was well worth it. Great views and interesting information by the guide. It is a nice little break from the world with a beach right there and plenty of boat traffic to watch.

I live in Jupiter and have visited the lighthouse a number of times. In fact, it's a 'go to' place to bring out of town visitors. Jupiter is more than just pretty; it's loaded with fascinating history. A visit to the lighthouse brings you first to an old wood frame building put up by the navy because of its strategic... More

This is a fairly inexpensive tour that is really interesting. The volunteer guides are very good & the lighthouse is beautiful. The banyan tree at the base is unbelievable- lots of weddings are held there. The views from the base & from the top are fantastic. Total time required is less than an hour - definitely worth the investment.

For $12 each for an adult, I was expecting something a bit more detailed and interesting. This lighthouse is fairly run of the mill, especially compared to New England and European lighthouses. The "pioneer" house was also barely historical - my neighbor's house is older.

Nice museum and grounds. Great history lesson. Well maintained. It's always fun to climb a lighthouse and walk around on top looking at the views. It is a strenuous climb. there is plenty to see if you don't make the climb. Beautiful day.

What can I say? I think my title says it all! I have been to this lighthouse a few times, and every time I go, it feels like I never went there before! Climbing to the top is quite a feat, but well worth it once you get to experience the breathtaking views. There's so much history at this location.... More

How often do you have a chance to climb 105 steps to the top of a lighthouse? This is such a unique experience. The Fresnel lens is amazing, the views of Jupiter Inlet from the top are spectacular and the museum experience is both educational and historical. We were quite impressed with the opportunity to not only see, but climb... More
