This was my second trip to the Little Brewster Island Lighthouse. The boat ride is pleasant, although the narration is practically inaudible. The first trip, I climbed the lighthouse. It is very interesting and offers great views, but be warned that it means 76 steps and two ladders in VERY hot, confined spaces. In fact, of the 40 climbers that are allowed on the trip, only 8 at a time can climb up and down, so there is a lot of waiting around. It is a beautiful spot to visit, but there is very little shade (find a spot on the ground in the shadow of the lighthouse) and the only places to sit down are in the blazing sun. This trip I went as a non-climber with my 84 year old mother, and the lack of shady benches is a problem since we were on the island for almost two hours. Also note there are no bathrooms. So I rated my first trip as a 5 and the second as a 3 - hence the 4-star rating.
