Guests are invited to bring a lunch and enjoy a picnic while exploring the island and lighthouse.

Your ticket cost covers boat transportation to and from the island and all the fixings for smores by the campfire.

Boarding is scheduled to take place at the Alofsin Pier at Fort Adams at 3:30 p.m., with a return trip due to touch back dockside at 6 p.m.
