NOTICE TO GUESTS: We are located on Naval Air Station Pensacola. NAS Pensacola is currently open only to current DoD ID card holders and certain Veterans Health Identification Card holders. Unless sponsored through the Trusted Traveler program, no civilians will be granted access onto the base until further notice, and thus will not be able to access the Lighthouse. 

PLEASE NOTE: For those who are granted access onto NAS, the gift shop and lighthouse tower are open. However, the Keeper's Quarters will remain closed until further notice. This means that there are no restrooms or water fountains available to guests. Please plan your visits accordingly. Guests will be required to bring their own masks and wear them at all times while on the premises. Please also supply your own hand sanitizer if desired. Read on-site signage for social distancing requirements.
