We had a great visit and our guide Marlene was a fount of knowledge. She told us about the history of the lighthouse and its keepers. As a bonus she told us about a life enhancing elixir!

We read all of the info in the information centre. We decided to tour the inside of the lighthouse. It was a really rainy day. The info shared by the 2 docents was interesting and informative.

At the lighthouse, educational, historic, fun, and breathtaking activities come together as you walk through & around to explore. The host in the lighthouse is very knowledgeable to answer your questions. This site is also a wonderful place to take pictures.

Take some time and hike along the trails from the lighthouse. A great location to enjoy the beautiful, barren and wild coastline.
