Great tour on the shorter side. More than a lighthouse. Old lighthouse keeper house on site with beautiful 79 year old ficus tree nearby that looks like it belongs in a jungle. Steps going up were well taken care of and the tour guide explains the steps, low ceiling areas and rest areas if needed. About 100 steps up. Lovely... More

Beautiful views of Jupiter Inlet from the top of the light house. Very pretty setting and I love the way the lighthouse sits up high on a hill.

Our tour guide was a member of the historical society and very knowledgeable of local history. It's a stunning view of the area but a lot of steps to the top.

I have lived here for 6 years and finally made the climb of the lighthouse. It was actually an easy climb--only 120 steps, or so, with stops on the climb. Once at the top, the view is spectacular. At the bottom of the lighthouse is a magnificent Banyan Tree--unlike any other I have ever seen. The tour was informative and... More

Had a very informative tour of the grounds & lighthouse history on a lovely, sunny day. Climbed to the top of the lighthouse with was reward with a fabulous view of the inlet. Ocean so clean watched a pair of manatees swim right up to a couple of kayakers!

This is a beautiful location and a lighthouse you can enjoy. Take the walk to the top(fee) and you will have a spectacular view of the area. You can even try your luck fishing along the waterway or enjoy a family picnic. The museum and gift shop is a good spot to check out. Jupiter is a spot that ages... More

We could not go to the top of the light house because of the wind. We had 50 mph wind gusts so they won't let you go up the tower. $12.00 admission charge for adults. 1/2 price when you can't go up the tower. Call and ask what the wind conditions are before you go. I did find out that... More
