About


Santa Barbara Lighthouse

Although the original lighthouse no longer stands here, a USCG-maintained light still shines from the steep cliff above the Santa Barbara Channel, just southwest of the main part of town.

History:

The first lighthouse was completed and manned here in 1856, but a strong earthquake in Santa Barbara in 1925 destroyed the lighthouse. A small steel tower now serves to hold an electric optic today.

Navigating in and Around the Lighthouse:

Use NOAA Chart 18725.

Characteristics: Flashing white every ten seconds with a focal plane 142 feet above the Pacific Ocean.

Local Notices to Mariners:

Local Notices to Mariners are available online from the U.S. Coast Guard.

Tour Schedule:

The original lighthouse is no longer standing, and only a small steel tower serves to protect the light. The light is on the grounds of a USCG base and off limits.
