My family (including 3 teenagers) had a great time today. The trip was easy to schedule by calling the toll free number found on their website. We enjoyed the boat ride and the tour of both the lighthouse and cottage. All volunteers were pleasant, knowledgeable...More

I will say up front that I am a bit biased to this tour because my older brother is one of the guides. Now that I have owned that, I love this tour! You have to book your spot early for two reasons: one, they...More

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
