After an evening hike where we climbed the lighthouse and saw a stunning sunset we returned for a morning hike. What a beautiful day we had exploring the trails, beach and coves we came upon. During our day we saw eagles, seals, fox & deer....More

We actually never saw any transportation but others said they are. If you are going to the other Islands you might need a car. I would think you need a car to go see Mt. Constitution on Orca Island. That is the best view I have ever seen in my life.
