We kayaked out from Rockport's T Warf for our first open ocean kayak adventure to visit friends Gary and Diane who were volunteering as light house keepers. We were a bit nervous about the kayaking but the weather and sea conditions were perfect. We made it out in about 50 minutes which we understand is pretty quick. The scenery along the coast is great as well as the view approaching the island and the twin lighthouses. Gary and Diane toured the entire island with us as well as the trek to the top of the lighthouse. It is a strenuous climb of 156 steps but the view is worth the effort. We recommend you read up on the history of the island prior to your visit as we had done. It has a very interesting past. There is a museum on the island. It is reachable by boat of=r kayak. There is also a shuttle on Wed. and Sat. that must be reserved ahead. There is a $5 fee per person.
