Ferry ride to the island was informative and scenic. Once on the island, we enjoyed walking the short trail and touring the historic lighthouse. I wouldn't recommend the special "haunted" tour, though. We found it a bit silly. Tour guides were very nice and knowledgeable.

Norwalk's best kept secret is now officially out! This boat ride on the river seeing oyster fisherman, local boats, beautiful homes, islands, bird nests and having 2 top notch tour guides was outstanding. Bring a picnic basket and enjoy the tranquility and the water.
