Just under five decades old, the red-and-white-striped Harbour Town Lighthouse serves not only as a beacon to the many ships that reside in our Yacht Basin but also as a landmark that has come to symbolize Hilton Head Island to people all over the world. With the addition of the Lighthouse Legends Tour in 2001, we were able to transform this icon into an informative, educational, and fun experience for all!
Our mission is to ensure that all of our visitors have a memorable experience that they will cherish for years.

In addition to the historical lighthouse tour, we proudly offer one of the most unique gift shops on Hilton Head Island, featuring one the largest collections about lighthouses in America. Not only are we a beacon for travelers, we are also a beacon for charity!

Over the past 24 years, we’ve donated over $100,000 to various charities and we continue to raise money for the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s!
We are proud to host the Coast Guard Exhibit at the Harbour Town Lighthouse Museum. There are already new donations coming in so this dynamic exhibit will continue to grow and tell an ever exciting story of the Coast Guard!
