1/11/2016: 2016 Light List now available

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 Notices to Mariners will continue to advertise Light List corrections and the Navigation Center will continue to publish a compilation of corrections.

Visit the Coast Guard’s Navigation Center webpage for the 2016 Light Lists.

Complete versions of the 2016 Light Lists are updated weekly on the website; mariners should download applicable copies and updates as needed at:
