  • Went here and did the Mudflat Mania. This was a nice little hike down to the shoreline. This takes place at low tide so you can learn about the sea life that is located near the shore. Very fun for little children and adults as well. You are able to walk along the shore and look for many different things. The staff is very polite and give you information about the sea life you are going to encounter on this little adventure. Bring a little bucket and little scooper to dig with. Have fun and enjoy the beautiful scenery that you will see.
  • We came after hours, but you can still do the nature walks, which was 100% worth it! We followed the 1.5 mile trail with our 2-9 year olds and our teenager. They LOVED walking over the salt marshes, and exploring all the tide pools on the beach! They saw crabs, clams, horseshoe crabs, and came home with many natural "treasures"! We will definately return!
