‪The lighthouses are open during Canal Days on the August Civic holiday weekend. They are worth visiting. The boat ride over from the marina is very nice.

HOWEVER...

DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER ! ! ! !

DO NOT CLIMB UP TO THE TOP!!! THE walkway is NARROW, STEEP, access at the top is difficult at best and if you do make it, there is only ONE DOUBLE RAILING that is NOT FENCED IN! It would be too easy for ANYONE, especially children to fall through or over the railing. The only thing at the bottom is concrete. YOU do the math if you fall!!

IT IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS CLIMB!!

I've done it in the days when I could and the view was great, however even if I could, with that level of DANGER, I would NEVER do it again. I don't much care that the Friends of the Port Lighthouses carry insurance. No amount of liability insurance is enough if someone is seriously injured or worse. Frankly, I'm surprised FOPL could even find an underwriter!

Finally, NONE of the volunteers are trained in first aid, CPR and they do not have a defib onsite.

Look, Enjoy the view but DO NOT CLIMB!‬

‪Port Colborne Lighthouses are quite far from the land.

I took pictures with my cameras.

I wish we could go there by boat.‬

‪I took the boat trip out to the lighthouse during Canal Days. It's a fun adventure but not necessarily suited to everyone. To get to the top of the lighthouse, you have to climb up quite vertical ladders. And the walk-about at the top is narrow with a low railing. You don't have to go to the top but it's the highlight of the visit.‬

‪Had a very enjoyable tour of our local lighthouse and the history behind it- with a water taxi ride right up to the house! Our guide was a former history teacher who filled us in on the background of the tunnels, the building and it's keepers. Some climbing up to the top that may prove challenging but you don't have to climb all the way up to enjoy the tour. Encouraging all to take the tour during Port Colborne's Canal Days celebration each Civic holiday week end in August! ‬

‪This attraction is not always open as you have to take a boat out to the light house. We did the visit during their annual canal festival.

It's a fun boat ride out and it was a lot of fun going into the light house. It is has not really been redone but if you enjoy light houses you need to visit. There was some history there about the buildings as well.‬

‪It's still an interesting lighthouse to look at and go inside but only on the mail floor. After two years there have been no safety improvements whatsoever. The steep stairway up is easy to trip on and then it's all the way down. It's really hard to get to the room with the light, you have to balance precariously on the top rung of the vertical ladder then crawl on hands and knees outside to a narrow walkway. The walkway offers great panoramic views however there is no proper safety railing. The railing is only about 3' high, no fencing, it's way to easy to slip under the railing and hit the concrete at least 3 stories down. The best best is to walk the pier to the second lighthouse for great views but going up the main lighthouse is too dangerous.‬

‪This is truly an event -- to be able to visit the 1903 lighthouse once a year during Port Colborne's Canal Days on the holiday weekend in August. The volunteer staff provide excellent commentary. Visitors are welcome to spend as much time at the lighthouse as they wish (within the hours that the lighthouse is open and boat tours are operating). (One note that should be made -- for those who plan on accessing the outside platform at the top of the lighthouse, it is accessible only through a half-door. My wife was able to scale the "ship's ladders" of the interior only to be disappointed in not being able to navigate through the half-door in order to reach the top platform.) A special thank you to all those who offered such a great welcome and all those behind-the-scenes who have worked so diligently to enable the public to access and enjoy this site.‬

‪The only way to really enjoy these 3 lighthouses is to take a boat during the Canal Days. For 10$ they transported us to the oldest lighthouse built in 1903. While at the lighthouse, the schooner Empire Sandy passed us by. How beautiful this ship truly is!

We were able to explore everything in the lighthouse. A former history teacher from Port High gave us all the historical details. Quite informative! There was only one place we couldn’t visit: the pier. The only way to visit the pier is to rent a boat and get there.

However, the light keeper didn’t have much room for his bed.

Going up the lighthouse for me was tricky. The metal stairs were quite small and we had to make sure not to hit our head! Once we were at the top, there was nothing to hold on to. We had to be creative to get inside the top of the lighthouse. Then we had to do some gymnastics to bend ourselves to go outside the top of the lighthouse.

It was fun! We certainly enjoyed our trip to the lighthouses. Well, truly we visited only the old one, but the other two lighthouses could be clearly seen from this lighthouse.

P.S. I cannot see how small children could go up the stairs.‬

‪Due to circumstances these lighthouses are open very small amounts of time. Permit was only good for 4 hours and we just missed the last boat out. Plan ahead and get there early to tour.‬
