We always book a tour with George, he is a lovely man, very knowledgable and always gives an excellent commentary. This is the only boat that is allowed to land on the lighthouse island and you can go in the lighthouse for a small fee.

Interesting sights, informative commentary, lots of seabirds and seals seen at close quarters. Lighthouse visit was excellent. Might be a bit uncomfortable on a rainy day as it's an open topped boat, but was terrific on the beautiful sunny day we had.
