For lunch or just for relaxing, It must take a special kind of person to be a lighthouse keeper!. The flowerpots themselves are spectacular.

Regular tour boats will ferry you to the island and there are some interesting hiking trails. Composting toilets are used which are fine. There is also camping available.
This is a 500 acre island with some beautiful walks and set in crystal clear waters with some of the best scuba diving in Canada nearby.

Nice boat trip to the island. View a couple of shipwrecks along the way. Pack a towel and wear your bathing suit to take a dip when done your trails.

Combining swimming & walking makes for a great afternoon. We split our group between the ferry and our own boat and it worked well. Take everything you need and bring everything out! May be too long for smaller children, so be prepared to carry them for the final part.

A very pleasant walk on good, well maintained footpaths to the lighthouse.

The lighthouse has a beautiful museum run by volunteers, who have done a fantastic job recreating the rooms with interesting artefacts and photographs.

A bonus is a cold drink available at the museum, which helps you on your way back to the ferry.
