Reviewed March 25, 2012

The lightship is a great display of life on-board a floating lighthouse protecting sailors from the dangers of the Columbia Bar. Visitors are allowed to tour the ship at their leisure seeing life below the deck of what must have been an exciting place to work only a few decades ago. Also on display is the first automated buoy that replace the lightship.

What a great way to get to see what ship life was like! Watch your step - there are a few places to bump your head or trip (especially tricky getting down the stairs!) but a great experience.
