This takes awhile to get to, but it is worth a look. However, the parking is severely limited, even in the supposed off-season when we visited. Lots of folks ended up parking in one of the bus parking spots, hustling over to watch the Spouting...More

There is one large blow hole and a few smaller ones depending on the tide. There was a small craft market set up next to the spouting horn when we where there.
