Took the ferry over to the lighthouse. Highly recommend staying the whole day as we had to take another day to go over and explore because we only requested to stay for 3 hours. Highly recommend taking the beach shuttle in island to the point. Found TONS of beautiful shells in all shapes and sizes. Beautiful island to explore. The history of island and lighthouse is very interesting. This is a must see.

Best seashore we have been to! Nice ferry ride to island was $80 for a family of 6. Nearly had the entire Atlantic side to ourselves. The shells we found were amazing with tons of variety and lots of huge shells. Perfect for a family getaway.

We took the island ferry over to cape lookout lighthouse and had a wonderful time as a family. Once on the island we paid for a truck ride to the end of the cape, about 4 miles down the beach. We found many large whelk shells in the ocean and had a great time despite the occasional showers. So worth the time and effort to get to the island

If you are a nature lover and beach lover, do not miss this chance to enjoy the southern coastline as it was meant to be enjoyed. If you have a four-wheel drive, or want to rent one, contact the ferry service in Davis & book a full or half-day trip over. You can drive up a sand road or along the beach to the inlet to the north or to Cape Lookout to the South. There, you will find the lighthouse & keepers quarters, gift shop with some snacks, rangers & volunteers to answer questions & restrooms with flush toilets. Lighthouse still closed to climbing due to COVID. You can drive all the way down to the point & fish with coastal permit. You will need an off-road permit as well, which is free, issued by the park service, but has to be mailed to you, so plan ahead. You will also have to make ferry reservations ahead of time. We had ours with two days, but I’d recommend giving it a week.

Had to wear masks on ferry ride. Beach side was almost deserted. Only one other couple there. Lighthouse currently closed due to Covid. But lighthouse keepers house open with attendants. Ferry side of beach packed. Bathroom available and outside shower. Water fountains/refill station not working:(. Does have small store to buy drinks.
