Florence, OR — A popular lighthouse to photograph, the Heceta Head Lighthouse is the brightest light on the Oregon Coast.  Opening in 1894 the Heceta Head Lighthouse can be seen 21 nautical miles off the Oregon Coast!  

The Lightstation and Keeper's house needs tour guides for 2017. Guides greet visitors and share the rich history of this special Oregon treasure! Dedicate 50 hours and earn a free night stay at the Keeper's House Bed & Breakfast. Over 24,000 people from across the globe visit the Lightstation every year.

The free public tours are filled with people who are thrilled to learn about the Lightstation and the Oregon Coast. Tours get under way at the Keeper’s house during Spring Break and then from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.  Tours occur daily (except Wednesdays) from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Tours during special events and by appointment occur throughout the year.
