Interesting history and the tour guides are very knowledgeable. The opportunity to visit one of the few working lighthouses was fabulous..

We liked that we could walk through the ocean bottom at low tide to get to the lighthouse. The tour guides were very knowledgeable. The areas were small and tight for people to stand in. There was not water facility to wash your feet after walking in the sand and the mud.

One of the few active light houses along the coast. Go early in the day to have access to the light house island; the tide starts rising and all visitors need to be off the island by approximately 12:30p.

We did not take the tour because they were closed but walked up there in the evening right before sunset. It closes to all public after sunset. Just walking around on our own was nice. It was beautiful up there and a nice evening walk.

Quaint old lighthouse. Great history to be told here. Just make sure the tide is not coming in before you walk out there.

To access this place you need to check the sign board with the tide charts. We hit it at high tide so just watched from shore

We drove along the scenic coast drive and stop to view the lighthouse. Parking is a little ways off so you'll have to hoof it up the hill but the view is worth the experience.

Watch the tide table not accessible during high tide.b Scenery is beautiful. Price for the tour is only $3 and worth it.

Very cool as you can only get to the island at low tide. Gorgeous views and a great tour. The tour through the quarters and into the lighthouse is pretty cramped, so be advised if you're claustrophobic...but it was very cool.
