Lighthouse Passport Book

You can keep a record of all the lighthouses you visit in an official Lighthouse Passport Book!

If a lighthouse is closed in our area, you can still get all three stamps at the Presque Isle Lighthouse during business hours. It is suggested that visitors donate a dollar ($1)  to the local preservation initiative for each stamp, which will help “Keep the Light Shining“.

Join the Passport Book Club by clicking on the US Lighthouse Society’s website at to get all of the details online.  It is a free service.
