First time visitors. We were very pleased with the groomed trails, the flower pots, the updated washroom facilities, and the helpful staff. Took the 9:00 boat over with a 1:05 pick- up and it was plenty of time. We hiked all the trails in that...More

It makes a nice hiking stopover, the hike to the lighthouse is a bit long, but rewarding. We were not disappointed.

The Friends of Fathom 5 took over the care of the two lighthouse keeper's homes on the west side of Flowerpot Island. They've done a good job turning one into a museum and the other is used for their living quarters. If you want to...More

The lighthouse itself is a 10 minute (??) walk from the light keeper's complex. The walk is narrow and not appropriate for wheelchairs, but it is on sidewalk. It is not a traditional lighthouse, since it has a 4-sided red and white column. The keeper's...More
