Hillsboro Lighthouse logoActivated in 1908, the Hillsboro Lighthouse, also known as the Big Diamond is the brightest active lighthouse in the world. This is your chance to get in on a semi-private tour and see areas not usually open to public viewing. The view from the top is from Fort Lauderdale all the way to Boca Raton

The Details:

Our event is scheduled on a public tour day, but the 1st boat out will be reserved for Parrotheads Only (we need to fill it). We will have approximately 1 hour of private access to the Lighthouse and grounds during which time the Lens room will be open to groups of 6. The lens room is being opened just for us and will close after 1 hour. It will not be open to the public when the next boat arrives, however you can still climb to the viewing platform just below it.

Return Shuttle Boat Departs the Lighthouse hourly at 10am,11am and 12pm (you may take your choice if available).

The tour includes the boat ride to and from the dock, access to the beach (some choose to picnic) and the lighthouse tower, and the option to climb the 175 steps up the circular stairway to the observation platform. There are chairs on the property and a gazebo as well, feel free to bring beach chairs. HLPS sells water, but does not sell food.
