This potentially should have been a very good tour, but sadly, our boat captain/tourguide really couldn't have cared less. He did give us the memorized script, but when asked questions, he more often than not responded with a wise crack answer and on at least one occasion, I'm certain he gave a wrong answer, based on hearing the same question...

We apologize you feel your tour & guide wasn't worth your investment of $17. Unfortunately, there is no way to pack everything into the 1.5 hours allotted for each tour thus our repeat customers. As for not being permitted to go to the very top of the tower, that is controlled by the State. In regards to your guide, your... More

The old lighthouse is now a museum, and is on an island. The only way to get there is through this lighthouse tour. Short boat ride to get there, and you get to see the Harbor Haus restaurant from the water. The lighthouse museum exhibits were very informative, my favorite was some preserved children's graffiti from 1908 where the kids... More

The area was so peaceful and the views were spectacular. I can't recall the last time I was so relaxed. The tour was wonderful, the guide very informative and the price was just right.

We chose the sunset cruise. The weather was beautiful though chilly and the water was calm. This is a very personal cruise with a maximum of 18 people. The captain is laid-back and very knowledgeable of the area. The lighthouse is fascinating. The peninsula is beautiful with rock outcroppings and many wild flowers, trees and ferns. Our family of 4... More

This tour was very informative and informal. The Captain knew what he was talking about and also handled the boat great. You could tell when he would make adjustments to keep guests from getting sprayed. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating since one of the tours had to be cancelled due to bad weather.

We enjoyed this tour of the lighthouse! The Captain of the boat was very nice and informative! You can tell he knows what he is doing navigating the waters in harbor which can get rough. If they are too rough they may cancel your cruise so keep that into consideration. Also, show up early if you did not book tickets... More

This is more than a boat ride and a trip to a light house, You get to see where the copper was found that started the copper rush, I have been to a lot of lighthouses and for me seeing the vain of quartz coming out of the water where the float copper was found made it all worth it.

We actually took this trip twice! We took one of the day tours, and the weather was bright and sparkling. Captain Tim really knows his stuff. I really wanted to go on a sunset boat cruise, but the only other one available decided not to run that day because of low turnout (the kids had gone back to school, so... More
