4Hr Solitary Island and Historic Lighthouse Cruise

4.5 based on all time ratings

Set your sights on Solitary Island, just as its name suggests – an isolated gem amidst endless blue waters. Come aboard for an exclusive sightseeing Coffs Harbour cruise to this unique island, where you'll discover one of only two island-based lighthouses along the entire NSW coastline.

But it's not just the lighthouse that awaits you on the island. The keeper’s house here is straight from 1880. It was once the residence of lighthouse keepers and their families, who chose to stay here with the mainland far, far away. No quick trips to the grocery store here!

Now, as you cruise around the island, get ready for some jaw-dropping sights. You'll be treated to stunning views of the lighthouse and its dwellings, not to mention the incredible arches and rock formations carved by time and the elements.

For history enthusiasts, a treasure trove of historical photos and videos unveils the island's rich past. Furthermore, the interesting commentary paints a vivid picture of the life of the remarkable people who once called this island home.

Sometimes, a former resident hops aboard and shares interesting anecdotes from their time on the island. If the weather plays nice, the vessel will hoist its sails on the way back home. Plus, the morning tea is on the house!

So, if you've only ever known the hustle and bustle of modern life, get ready for an eye-opening, island-hopping, history-unveiling kind of day! Reserve your seats on this Coffs Harbour lighthouse cruise now!
