Love their gift shop and feel like when I make a purchase there I'm helping the light house. Lots of good photo opportunities

“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

This is the first lighthouse I have actually been in. I was actually amazed that the public was able to go to the top. I admit the spiral stairs scared me a little as I am not big on heights. I think 12 people being squeezed in the top was a little too much and felt bad for a couple older people who seemed to struggle getting up that last ladder. The view was amazing, but maybe the tours should be kept at a max of 8.

“Small but interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

The climb up to the light (inside the lighthouse) is steep, small and may be difficult for some older or larger people but it's worth the climb if you can do it. There is a lot of interesting information and the tour guides know a lot of the history of the lighthouse. It's worth it even if you can't climb up to the light.
