  • What a cool lighthouse. Very knowledgeable docents. The ride to/from the site is is worth the price of admission itself. Unfortunately you are only allowed 1 hour on site. Ride to/from is about 20...

  • We took the hike.. Met at 845 am and were back by 1245pm.. Docents Gary, Scott and Mike were very nice.. Explained a lot during the hike about the area. At the light house, they took us to each room and talked about how each room was used back in the days.. Would have loved to have spent few more mins in the grounds.. Hike is free but if you want a tour of the lighthouse, it's $10/ person
  • This was such a fun experience! The tour guide Kent was very knowledgeable and answered all questions with no hesitation. Knew dates and the names of people that lived there. The set up was neat and the history and information was cool to see. The restoration of the buildings is impressive, seeing what it was before. The view was amazing. This was really cool and such a great memory for our honeymoon.
