Port Boca Grande Lighthouse
Boca Grande, Florida - Built in 1890
The Port Boca Grande Lighthouse was lit in 1890 on the southern most tip of Gasparilla Island. The light was used as a guidepost to mark Boca Grande Pass, the entrance to Charlotte Harbor.
Today the lighthouse is the center piece to Gasparillo Island State Park and is an active aid to navigation. The lighthouse is now a maritime museum and is opened to the public.
