    Easy to get to by land. Was a nice visit and interesting lighthouse due to construction. It can be entered into without appointment most days, however, a climb to the top must be scheduled and I would suggest appropriate footwear as it is ladders to top, not stairs as is usual.

    I visited Oak Island during non business hours, and did not view the inside. With that said, the tower and surrounding facilities were well kept and inviting, encouraging a second trip in the future... (and confirming business hours)

    The volunteers are all very friendly and informative. Views from the top are amazing! You just can't show up and expect to climb though; have to request at least 2 weeks in advance.

    Really interesting and nice volunteers. No charge, but depends on donations for upkeep.
