I tried to get to this lighthouse when we were staying in Titusville, but was not able to actually see it until we were on the Disney Fantasy leaving the Port Canaveral channel in 2013.

The original lighthouse on Canaveral was a 65-foot brick tower, constructed in 1848. A new tower (built after the Civil War) was composed of metal plates with a brick lining. The Cape Canaveral Lighthouse didn’t receive its distinctive black bands until 1873 - before that it was all white

Now the launch towers at the Cape are quite visible for a long distance - they are taller than the lighthouse. The lighthouse was automated in 1967. The strong vibrations, which accompanied the frequent launches, were starting to shake the lens to pieces - several prisms had actually fallen out of the supporting brass framework. The lighthouse was restored by the Coast Guard starting in 1995 and since December 2000, it is owned by the Air Force. Grounds and the first four levels of the tower are open open during tours.
