Reviewed October 8, 2013

interesting and worth visiting! Nice trails to walk around and the view is great! When it is foggy it is kind of earie (sp), especially with the fog horn going all the time.

“Great view”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

What a beautiful view from a high cliff. Worth the trip up, even on a bicycle. It was great fun watching the ferry come into the harbor.

“Beautiful lighthouse with a lot of character”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

My husband and I happened to walk up to this lighthouse on a Sunday afternoon and were fortunate enough to find one of the gentleman responsible for the ongoing restoration willing to give us a quick tour. There is a beautiful view from the upper level. We were fortunate enough to see a minke whale right from there! In addition, the history of the lighthouse and the dedication of our guide to that history made for a wonderful experience.
