  • Great old fort with teen actors. All of the reenactors are very knowledgeable and love to share their info.
  • Overall, great experience! It's started out a little rough when the ferry left early; however, the staff handled the situation perfectly. The ferry ride was great and definitely added to the experience. On the island, we paid $5 extra per person for the inside tour, which lasted about 2 and 1/2 hours. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Also, we got to see parts of the fort that aren't included in the regular admission. One important thing to note is that this is a "leave it as is" site; therefore, any trash must taken with you when you leave the island and food and drink options on the island are very limited. Highly recommended!
