This is another lighthouse tour not to miss. The docent provided an excellent history of the lighthouse and living there. You were then able to explore the lighthouse on your own. Since the tour was not crowded, we were allowed to stay and catch the next boat back to shore.

I have been wanting to visit for a long time and finally got a chance Saturday, October 14th. To start off we arrived at 10:50 and out tickets where for noon. They graciously allowed us to take the 11 AM trip over. We stayed so we could view the two movies they show. Both were very interesting. I love light houses and the ones you can actually go in and tour are few and far between. The guide had a lot of knowledge about the lighthouse. You can go to the top and squeeze through a small opening and walk around the light. The view is beautiful. Whether you're a tourist or live in the area you should visit and support the funding of our area lighthouses. They are worth preserving.

All the staff involved, and the crew of the boat, were all professional, friendly, and making sure all the guests were enjoying the experience.

I have always meant to do this and am glad I got a chance on the last Saturday of the year. Had a great time and an interesting view into 1930's Hudson River life.

Fun, relaxing trip, beautiful scenery. I took this cruise for my birthday with my family. Great friendly staff. My only quibble is that there aren’t adequate speakers in front on the outside portion, very hard to hear captains narrative. Some more seating would also be helpful. Still, these are minor observations, definitely a terrific experience!
