The Cana Island Lighthouse takes a bit of getting to. A shallow channel runs between the mainland and island. Visitors can made over some large rocks, or catch a ride on a wagon hitched to a tractor. Neither are the most comfortable, but they do the job. The lighthouse is excellently preserved and gives visitors a good idea of what it was like to live at such a remote location. Lighthouse keeper was a 24-7 job. There are a few outbuildlings, showing the lighthouse employees’ necessary self-sufficiency in every aspect. There is also a very nice gift shop and restrooms near the entrance. A fee is required for the island.
