Tour begins at 11:00am Thursday - Sunday Tours are by appointment only! Call or email us to schedule your tour. About Us: The Bird Gardens of Naples is a nonprofit organization whose sole concern is parrot welfare in captivity and conservation of wild parrots. We are an outreach and placement program which places into safe custody, parrots which are abandoned, abused, or in need of a home for any reason. Parrots are intelligent, highly social and complex beings with a life span of up to 80 years. The individual bird's best interest and well being of the present flock will determine if a parrot is accepted into the organization. We actively support networking with other parrot welfare groups, animal welfare organizations, the veterinary community, conservation organizations and the general public. Education is of the utmost importance concerning the well being of a parrot and its ability to successfully live with its human companions. What to Expect: The Bird Gardens of Naples is located in Corkscrew Swamp with a variety of flora, fauna, bees and butterflies. Tours last approximately two hours with several miles of walking trails. You will have the opportunity to see, learn, and interact with 200+ birds from origins around the world. If weather allows, groups can enter our large macaw aviary with opportunities to take photos and hold birds. Please wear comfortable shoes and don't forget your sunscreen and bug spray. We do not charge a fee for our tours, but donations are greatly appreciated and go along way to help keep the birds happy and healthy. less

Beverly Hills has Rodeo Drive, Palm Beach has Worth Avenue, and Naples has the Waterside Shops. The difference is that this is a shopping destination rather than a street, and within it are beautiful seating areas situated in view of artfully designed infinity-edge fountains, with outdoor bars and indoor-outdoor cafes. Thoughtfully, the developers arranged to include among Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Hermes, St. John, Gucci, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, and an array of contemporary fashion boutiques such as Michael Kors, Max Azria, Lulu Lemon, and Juicy Couture. It’s not all fashion, though—Swarovski crystal, M.A.C. Cosmetics, Pottery Barn, Starbucks, Tumi luggage, Soma Intimates, Papyrus stationery and Barnes & Noble are also in the mix. The Waterside Shops' more than 60 shops and restaurants lets you indulge in the extraordinary while you delight in the everyday. less
