This Park is very accessible. There were alternate paths for people who cannot navigate rocky paths. The lighthouse has an informative display about whales (it is operated in partnership with the Whale Museum.) restrooms are clean. Parking seems to be adequate.

We really enjoyed our time here--even though we did not see whales. The scenery is spectacular. Definitely worth a trip.
