The boat ride to Sheffield island and lighthouse tour were fun and informative. Sheffield is a beautiful place to take photos. The staff is friendly and helpful. I enjoyed hearing stories about the lighthouse.

Ferry ride to the island was informative and scenic. Once on the island, we enjoyed walking the short trail and touring the historic lighthouse. I wouldn't recommend the special "haunted" tour, though. We found it a bit silly. Tour guides were very nice and knowledgeable.
