We went here for the 4th time in March. It is a must do on our trips to Florida. It is a great place to stop and see all the different birds and find out what a woderfu; job everyone is doing taking care of them.

This is my first time to the Sea Bird Sanctuary, I moved to the area in July. I walked in beach side, before I entered the smell almost made me turn around and leave. It smells terrible! The Birds are amazing to see up close. I enjoyed viewing and watching the Birds interact. Yet I feel they are over crowded... More

We really enjoyed visiting this bird sanctuary, I am so pleased that there are good people to care for injured birds. The place does not smell and was very clean considering all the birds that they care for. It was great to see them close up, i especially enjoyed seeing the blue jays they have very beautiful markings. The birds... More

Great place for children and adults to see the area shore birds face-to-face. The injured birds are cared for and then released when healthy. The staff is informative and all volunteer. Be sure to check out the little gift shop during your stroll through the Sanctuary. I usually enter from the beach side and plan my visit so I can... More

I love birds so I really enjoyed this place! It's a nice quick walk-through with a cute little gift shop where I purchased some nice items. It was entertaining to watch some of the birds wander around and also the enclosed birds. It's so great they help these birds!

I think this place is gross, but then again birds are pretty filthy animals. It smells really bad. Be careful when you go that you dont get pooped on from above. I felt bad for the birds because this is Life for some of them and I wouldnt call it a sanctuary, it looked more like prison grounds. Not pretty... More

We needed to get a walk in before hanging on the beach all afternoon. We got our coffees and walked to sanctuary. It was well worth it. Nice to see a place for injured birds to live in mostly-natural habitats near the beach. Watch out for lots of bird poop. But the volunteers were doing a lot of cleaning while... More
