  • The history about how this facility was used was very interesting. The actual boats that were used are on display in the boat house and the erosion of land makes it harder to understand how they got them into the water. It was very windy this day and the breaks in the water and choppyness made it easier to understand the life threatening conditions these people had to deal with during a rescue.
  • Cute stop, can probably go thru everything in 30 to 60 min. We got there late and were rushed. The fella there was super informative and attentive with answering all the kids questions. Enjoyable stop!
