The lighthouse and museum are must-sees while visiting Jupiter. The views are spectacular, and the history is so interesting. Don't forget your camera, as you can see the Atlantic Ocean and the Loxahatchee River with lots of boat action.

The tour is informative and the 360º views from the top are worth the hike up. There is a nice local museum attached to the gift shop.

If you are going to Jupiter, the lighthouse is a must-see. The tours are informative and the guides are great. The top of the lighthouse is beautiful with captivating views.

A wonderful tour guide made this place shine! We learned a lot about the Seminoles and lighthouses in general. It is not possible to enter the grounds without a tour guide.

Tour Guide is super informative on the lighthouse and area history. Also flexible, for those not interested or able to climb the steps to the top. Great work-out, great views, and an abundance of information on the area. Well worth the price!!
