We enjoyed the guided tour. Includes ferry round trip, golf cart ride around the island, ticket for Old Baldy Lighthouse and Museum a Nature Walk and maybe even a close look of a alligator if your lucky! I do wish they had a speaker so everyone could hear the guide. I had also hoped for more historical stories

Thank you so much for taking a moment to review the guided tour! We wish there were more historic sites left on the island, too, but sadly time and the elements (and sometimes man) took away any of those long ago.

FYI- if you go to BHI don't get the guided tour trip waste of money. Use there phone guided system to do the tour yourself and either rent a golf cart or bicycle. If you are walker than know that you get a one time FREE round trip on the tram. Just go up to the ticket counter and ask.... More

The tab seems pricey ... $57/person ... but includes round trip transportation on the Bald Island Ferry ($27.50/person), a 1.5 hour tour of Bald Head Island with an excellent guide, admission to Old Baldy Lightouse ($5/person), a 10% discount at the gift store and a $10/person coupon for lunch at Mojo's on the Harbor. The last was the only real... More

This is a great way to spend a half day or so when you are visiting Southport. The ferry ride is fun, too.
