I highly recommend this adventure, It's well worth it. I've been many times as a kid & now, I go with my family. It's a "wicked" fun time complete with exploring & learning about the granite Fort warren (Civil War hospital) then picnic, sunbathe & play (great for flying a kite) in the vast open area's on the island.
