Full Moon Climb at Cape St. George Lighthouse

The September Full Moon Climb at the Cape St. George Lighthouse on St. George Island will be held on Monday, September 12, 2011. The Sunset/Full Moon Climb will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and will include light hors d'oeuvres and a sparkling cider toast to the full moon. Cost is $15.00 for the general public and $10.00 for members of the St. George Lighthouse Association.

The recently opened Lighthouse Museum and Gift Shop will be open from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the evening of the Full Moon Climb.

The sun will set at 7:49 p.m. and the moon will rise at 7:45 p.m. on September 12. The almost simultaneous sunset and moonrise should be a spectacular sight from the top of the lighthouse.

After sunset, people are invited to climb to the top of the lighthouse for a breathtaking view of the full moon, as space and time permit. Cost is $10.00 for the general public and $5.00 for SGLA members.

The Cape St. George Light is located in St. George Lighthouse Park at the center of St. George Island, where Island Drive (the road off the bridge) ends at Gulf Beach Drive. Parking is available in lots at either side of the park.

Because space is limited, reservations are recommended. For reservations or more information, please contact the St. George Island Visitor Center at 850-927-7744 or toll free at 888-927-7744.
