Our guide, Dennis Hollis, suggested we take a look in the gift shop inside the lighthouse. He said their prices were good. So, not expecting much, we did so. We were surprised at the amount of things there, and also by the prices. When we checked them against those in the Dockyard, we found that on every occasion, the Dockyard prices were twice the light house's. So, if you are out by the lighthouse, go on in.

Best unique buys at the Lighthouse are Bermuda yacht ensigns.
The America's Cup store is now open at the Dockyard. IMO, the quality of the clothing is not as good as it was in San Francisco and the prices in Bermuda are outrageous.

I saw three official America's Cup stores last year with different branded merchandise. Two in the Dockyard and one in Hamilton. The one in Hamilton was Vintage Vines. I don't recall which brands were in the other two stores.

Gibbs Lighthouse. It is on Lighthouse Rd. off of South Road. Not far from Horseshoe Beach. Great views from the top.

Interesting. I was just there last month. One store in the Dockyard - freestanding modular. When asked if any other stores were around, clerk answered "no."

Can you take the #7 bus to Gibbs lighthouse?
Yes.
You have to walk up a bit of a hill to get from the bus stop to the lighthouse.

Would you happen to have an email for Dennis? Would like to inquire about his availability for September 17! Thanks!

My favorite souvenir gift shop is Flying Colors in Hamilton. Get off the ferry, walk across the street and up Queen St, not far on the left. Lots of colored flags out front.
