Due to the Executive order issued by Governor Cooper on Saturday 3/14/20 stating that all public venues be canceled until further notice, the Town of Caswell Beach and the Friends of Oak Island Lighthouse will comply and have suspended all tours as of Monday 3/16/20. Due to the close proximity of visitors climbing the tower and circling our small outside balcony during our tours and current social distancing and sanitation requirements, it is not possible for FOIL to safely conduct tours of the inside of the Lighthouse. As a result, we will not be accepting any reservations for tours until at least the beginning of February 2021 and if the governor relaxes the state social distancing restrictions. At that time the FOIL board will determine if we can safely reopen for visitors and ensure the protection of our volunteer staff. Please check this web site for the latest information on the status of tours.

The Lighthouse parking lots, walkway and grounds will be open sunrise to sunset, seven days a week, for visitor access and picture taking with the requirement that everyone please practice social distancing and masks would be appreciated. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. Our primary concern is for the safety of our visitors and our Lighthouse Volunteers.
