We'll climb all the way up to the Smoky Cape Lighthouse light room, and look down over Smoky Cape from the top balcony. Can you locate the grey nurse shark breeding grounds just off the coast? Discover how the lighthouse keepers and their families survived the isolation of living here. They kept the 'highway of light' in operation for over 100 years.

Remember to wear enclosed shoes. This activity's great for adults too.
