2018 Light List is Now Available on Navigation Center Website

2018 Light Lists are available on the USCG Navigation Center’s website at: http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?pageName=lightLists


Coast Guard Light Lists are a means for communicating aids to navigation information to the maritime public. The last government printed Light Lists were the 2014 editions.

While the Light Lists will no longer be available in government printed form, commercial reproductions may be available for purchase from maritime service providers.

Local Notice to Mariners will continue to advise Light List corrections and NAVCEN will continue to publish a compilation of corrections.

Complete versions of the 2018 Light Lists are updated weekly on the NAVCEN website and mariners should download applicable copies and updates as needed at: http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?pageName=lightListWeeklyUpdates

A summary of 2017 Light List corrections are available at: http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?pageName=lightListWeeklyUpdates
