Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

Hatteras lighthouse

The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, standing at 208 feet, is the tallest in the United States. The lighthouse is painted in black and white spirals, with a red base. Its light can be seen for 20 miles, warning ships of the submerged sand bars where so many ships have foundered.

The "Double Keeper's Quarters" is used to house the "Museum of the Sea" and the Buxton Visitor Center.

Distance from the Golfin' Dolphin: approx. 89 miles
