Description

Located at the northern end of Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz Harbor is a haven for fishing craft and vessels and has marked its entrance for forty years. The lighthouse stands 41 ½ feet tall above the level of the west jetty. It weighs 350,000 pounds and is built to withstand a quarter million pounds of wave energy. It is named the Walton Lighthouse, in honor of Mr. Charles Walton’s late brother, Derek, who served in the merchant marines and was lost at sea during World War II.
