Florida Travel: Full Moon Climb at the Cape St. George Light


(gentle instrumental) – There is nothing like
the view that you see from the top of a lighthouse. You can’t see it on a screen. You have to experience it for yourself. To be able to climb the
77 feet up to the top and be able to take in the 360 degree view of St. George Island is a
once in a lifetime experience. All right, everybody, well welcome to the full moon climb at Cape
St. George Lighthouse. The full moon climb is
a chance one a month for visitors and residents of the island to journey to the top of the lighthouse and to be able to see not
only a breathtaking sunset west out over Apalachicola Bay, but also an incredible full moon rise
over the Gulf of Mexico. Lighthouses are incredibly
neat places to visit. Even though technology
has diminished their need, they are still just a beacon to the past. It’s amazing to be able
to go up inside of them, to walk where people walked
a hundred, 200 years ago and to be able to look out on a view that not very many people get to see. They’re very cool. Then we’re gonna climb a ladder, it’s about an 8 to 10-rung ladder, depending on how long your legs are, up through a scuttle
hole and you’re gonna be in the lantern room, which
was where the lantern was. If you wanted to participate
in the full moon climb, you need to contact the
Lighthouse Gift Shop at 850-927-7745 to make your reservations. If you’re coming for the
climb, remember it is 92 stairs and a 10-rung ladder. It’s not an easy climb to the top, but if you forget your
camera, you will be sorry. (gentle instrumental)
