Can only get to Guard Island by boat! Very rustic with eagles and seals around to view, which makes for a great tour.

You can see the lighthouse from many viewpoints along Tongass Highway. Or if in a boat get close up for taking pictures.

We went on Lighthouse/Eagle excursions with Rob Holston and had a great time. Rob is knowledgeable and witty. We saw Eagles, their nests, he gives you lots of history, and the lighthouse was fun to see. Lots of chances for photography.

This is a very short, all one color lighthouse with nothing around it to see. We took a 15 minute boat ride out to see it. Well, that was a waste of time.

The lighthouse is located south of Ketchikan, on a small, rocky island at the northern entrance to Tongass Narrows.

One of the two photos shown is fin fact NOT Guard Island. I will send a few photos of Guard Island, a wonderful microcosm of South East Alaska.
