Great to see this gem - we walked the jetty to get a picture -

Walk Bearskin Neck and see the jetty - and there is your photo. Some suggested taking a Kayak but I didn't think that would be safe.

For the best view of the lighthouse, rent a kayak on Bearskin Neck and paddle around the island, or sign on with a guide.

The lighthouse at Staitsmouth Island can be seen from the headlands of the Old Garden Walk in Rockport. Otherwise you have to get there by boat. The old keeper's house looks really cool but is boarded up now.
