At first glance, the price may seem a little much but there is no possible way to describe the incredible value of this trip. Chantry Island is accessible only by boat. The lighthouse and keeper's cottage have been restored and are maintained by volunteers. The...More

It's a fun visit. You get a boat ride to Chantry Island and a guided tour of the lighthouse and the lighthouse keeper's house.
