Kayaking fun!
Aug 2021 • Friends
We went kayaking yesterday as a last minute group activity. Mark helped get everything ready for us and was super helpful! The little shop had some cute stuff and they do kid camps and education classes there also. The mangroves were really cool to kayak through and the trail is marked. We will define do it again and recommend it as a fun family activity.

A nice paced walk with some education along the way
Aug 2021
My wife is a scientist and a science teacher. We enjoy hiking and while this is a short walk, it attracted her. We enjoyed seeing the butterflies, birds, geckos and even a tortoise. A lot of the walk is very comfortable along boardwalks, but some is packed dirt. There are great placards all along the paths with great information for young and old minds. Some nice locations with great views. Many photo ops throughout the walk depending upon your desires. Clean comfortable restrooms. Ample parking when we visited. All of the staff were pleasant and informative. We encountered several during our walk and had questions each time. Very well run facility. Highly recommended.

Fun morning on the water
Jul 2021
Kayak rental from ELC was quick and easy. Marc, who got us situated, was very friendly and full of suggestions on where to go and what we could see on our journey. It was fun to walk the grounds after our two hours exploring the surrounding areas by kayak. Reasonable rental prices and helpful staff make this a great location for outdoor exploration!

Great little stop.
Apr 2021 • Family
We enjoyed taking the trails, but the best part was the little area to take pictures with the butterflies and the touch tank. They have a volunteer to tell you about the sea life and our child found it fascinating. Next time we would rent a kayak or take the pontoon boat ride. Easy to get to as well!

A hidden gem
Apr 2021 • Family
I don’t know why we haven’t visited this place sooner. It’s a wealth of knowledge and entertainment for the adults and the kids. We came with a 13yo and 4yo and both equally enjoyed it. The touch tank and all the hands on exhibits were very well thought out and executed. The boardwalk trails are well marked and I would say accessible to all abilities. We will for sure be returning.

Great for families with curious preschoolers
Feb 2021 • Family
We had a great visit here with our 3.5yo & 2yo. The trails and boardwalk provide an easy way for little ones to explore the rich mangrove ecosystem. There are many thoughtful hands-on learning opportunities for little ones across the campus. The indoor learning center features large aquariums and a touch pool. There also are blocks, puzzles, interactive murals and storybooks available to help little ones learn. Our 2yo fell in love with the "petable" manatee!

Highly recommend this for everyone!

Magical Mangroves-a Christmas to Remember
Dec 2020 • Couples
Prior to the Christmas holiday we enjoyed an evening canoe ride through the Mangroves....what a beautiful and simply incredible way to see Christmas lights! ELC is a fantastic place for fun and learning, for all ages. And this annual event is a must....mark your calendar to participate next year....your contribution will make a difference and the experience will provide a very special memory....

A local shop recommended taking a canoe trip through the mangroves they had decorated with holiday lights. We enjoyed it so much that we returned the next day to explore it in the light.

I enjoyed it more than the botanical gardens because there were more opportunities to experience the wildlife without being surrounded by tourists.

The beautiful setting and learning about the environment in which we live. We loved the pontoon boats and kayaking in the mangroves. Great experience for everyone in the family.
