  • Very natural. Raised path (boardwalk) through mangroves. Fun to spot all the different crabs and lizards. Interesting facts about the habitat, sprinkled throughout.

They have a small touch tank, but note only limited hours. Some other hands on activities for kids. But personally, I think the small hide and seek the lizards, crabs and all small wildlife is enough to entertain little ones who like to run around. Very, very nice volunteers. If you stroll through and relax and appreciate nature for what it is, this is a little gem.
  • A friend and I went on the Pontoon Boat experience to Pelican Island for two hours this morning. We saw several dolphins and lots of different bird species. Our volunteer guide, Dave, did a fantastic job making it interesting and informative. If you love seeing nature, this trip is for you.
