“Nicely redone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This lighthouse was reassembled using the original brick and it has been nicely redone. The charge was 5 dollars to climb. The climb is pretty easy to the top, but you will have to take a ladder up to the lantern room. The view is nice and well worth the climb.

“Lots of stairs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

My daughters and grandchildren took this tour and enjoyed it. A great view from the top after you scale the stairs! It was hot that day so the kids wanted to play instead but it was a nice adventure nonetheless. Right on the ocean!

“Beautiful views at the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

This was a quick, nice little stop on the island. Please be aware that it can get very warm in the lighthouse in the heat of the day in the summer ( no brainer right??) so an earlier trip in the mid morning is probably best. The climb wasn't too bad. The view at the top was fantastic. We took our two children ages 5 and 6 and they climbed it fine.

“Good Climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

But you can't get into the light area at the top if you are "large". It is clean and has a nice visitor's center right next door.
