Enjoyed our visit here. We came at feeding time and it was interesting to watch. Don't come here if you're afraid to get pooped on. It's entirely possible that one of the birds in the trees will find you!

Got to see a lot of local birds. We watched them feeding and we walked among a lot of the birds. It was a very good place to visit.

This is worth the visit. No fee, up close to the birds in their own environment. Sometimes right beside you, pelicans aren't shy. Go, see, make a donation. It was fun.

The bird enclosures are clean and easy to see. Atmosphere makes you feel like you are in a jungle even the aroma makes you feel in aroma special place. Beware and... More

We visit Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary every time we come to Florida & it's so good to see it improve a little each time we go. It's fantastic to see the hospital is back up & running. Very nice staff on hand ready to answer any of your questions. The bird enclosures are kept clean & seem a little less crowded... More

You blink and you miss it. A unique sanctuary where real vet work is being done for the birds. There were too many to count! Look hard for it from the beach or the road, it is worth a visit. Come in the mid afternoon for feeding time.

I loved how other birds that were not in cages came to keep the ones in cages company. Nice gift shop.

The facility takes care of injured birds. There are a lot of pelicans, a few owls, a hawk, blue jays and other migratory birds. This shouldn’t be thought of as a zoo to bring young children. The staff really is working to make a better life for our feathered friends. Please visit and donate.

Perfect for a gloomy day stop, we spent about an hour. The workers were very informative and interesting. Kids loved it.

This was a great little seabird sanctuary. Many seabirds throughout, all rescued from an injury and many on their way to recovery. It's a really small place, packed full with seabirds of all types. You can really get up close and see each one. The only depressing part is to realize how many seabird injuries occur because of the way... More
