“We are excited to bring YourPassNow to Cabrillo National Monument. Not only does this system offer visitors the convenience of purchasing their park passes before they arrive at this park, YourPassNow also connects visitors to many other units in the National Park Service system as well as to units of other federal agencies, such as National Forests. It is an extra connection for awareness about these lands that belong to the public." - Cabrillo National Monument Superintendent Andrea Compton.
YourPassNow provides an alternative to the traditional paper-based, in-person purchase method while simultaneously providing public lands with a tool to help manage the visitor experience. Using a personal device, visitors can purchase passes and permits from yourpassnow.com. Once purchased, passes arrive via email and can be used immediately, stored on a mobile device to be used later or printed.
Cabrillo National Monument is named after Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo who stepped into history as the first European to set foot on what is now the West Coast of the United States. In addition to telling the story of 16th century exploration, the park is home to a wealth of cultural and natural resources, including the Old Point Loma lighthouse.
