Great place, wonderful views all the way around. The staff were friendly and helpful. The tower was filled with local history of the port and surrounding areas. Wonderful for family's. Also a nice little gift shop there as well. They also have a big simulator so you can try to dock a ship. Also the price is 6 dollars per adult not bad at all. Definitely coming back would definitely recommend.
Lovely overview and facility. Do recommend as a stop, entrance fee worth the view from the top! Family friendfriendly and engaging history without too much. Can be a shirt stop over long 1-4hrs. Grounds surrounding this place are amazing, landscaping. Bridges, waterway and even charging solar palm trees. Paths, parking are all a breeze here!
