You can visit one or both islands with your round trip ticket. Visit one of the islands for the first half of the day, take the 12:00 run to the next island, and the last boat back, for a full day of exploring, picture taking, and relaxing. If you just don't have the time to visit one of the islands you can still enjoy the breathtaking views with a 1-1/2 to 2 hour trip by the lighthouse and the osprey nests.
