We did a tour, the stairs kind of freaked out my son a bit so he didn't go up and I get a little claustrophobic, so there is a tighter area when going up all the way to the light, but the tour guide talked...More

This was a real gem. We stopped here on a whim and I'm so glad we did! It is a beautiful little lighthouse. We decided to do the tour...a reasonable $6 charge and we were happy we did. The guides were so knowledgeable and enjoyable....More

I love accessibility of this Lighthouse! You can visit every day, rain or snow, and it is just great! For a small fee you can touch the very history! A lot of other lighthouses are making it hard to come inside or even come close...More

A wonderful visit to this lighthouse. Learned much about its history and how it was moved to keep it from falling into the ocean. An informative and picturesque trip good for the entire family

We enjoyed visiting the lighthouse and climbing up to see the light and the view. The stairs were steep for older people. Others in our tour walked to the point and had a beautiful view from the other side of the lighthouse. This was interesting...More
