It's been a fantasy of mine to actually experience the climb and walk on to the catwalk at the top of a lighthouse. On a cruise with the Bath Maritime Museum that goal mine was enjoyed here. Absolutely amazing! Will be going back.

Took the boat to Seguin on a beautiful day. Tied up on one of the moorings and explored the island. Beautiful vistas and easy walking terrain. Pack a lunch and go.

What a beautiful and tranquil place to visit! The seagulls fly overhead; the lighthouse looms in the distance, ready to be explored and the North and South paths along the island are inviting for a quick stroll.

I don't have an answer to that question Elaine. I would suppose that would depend upon how long the lightkeepers/caretakers stay there - which may only be for the summer. Just contact one of the local boat/ferry services... More
