We weren't able to visit the lighthouse in May and was very disappointed. Hope you got to see it in August.

The tour guide will come looking for you at the end of the pier where the busses are and look out for their signs. Make sure they know of the wheel chair, makes it easier fir them to find you.

The excursion team usually wait for you at the pier - I took the Viator excursion and it was brilliant - met you at the ship and brought you back in time too! Enjoy!
