Bodie Island Lighthouse opens for climbing Friday

MANTEO, N.C. (WITN) – A lighthouse in Eastern Carolina is opening ticket sales for climbing starting on Friday.

The Bodie Island Lighthouse will be opening ticket sales for climbing the lighthouse. However, the lighthouse says tickets can only be purchased the same day you intend to climb.

Tickets will begin selling every day at 7 a.m. and are sold through Recreation.

As climbing the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse likely won’t be possible until the summer of 2026, more people are expected to climb Bodie.

Lighthouse staff recommend making a Recreation account prior to buying your tickets.
