We walked the trails, searched for critters in the ocean and had a great time, minus the goose family chasing us for walking too close to them, the staff are helpful and kind. For only $4 per person you could spend hours here, we were here for 2 hrs and it flew by.

I've been going to Felix Neck for a number of years on my MV visits, usually around 6 AM for the quiet, great light (I'm a photographer) and active birds. It's a very special place, simply beautiful with many nice trails and the always active (in June when we visit) Osprey nest. Last night we went on their summer solstice... More

Great walking trails take you to the salt water inlet with abundant crabs, clams, shrimp and horseshoe crabs. Great views of the salt marshes. Saw 3 deer on the walk.

What can you say about such a magical place! The people and the place fill you with valuable information and instill a desire to live more mindfully! You breathe better and smile more even just driving up the long and winding road to the base building. Endless adventure and fun for the entire family!

If your visiting the Island and want to get away from the beaches the wildlife sanctuary is the place for you. It is easily accessible by public transportation. After wandering down a long trail you come across the barn/ center. The cost for non-members is $4 which is worth the donation. Inside you can learn about native island species. The... More

We visited the sanctuary and participated in one if the reptile classes. The class was fun and kept the attention of my 2 yr old with live animals that we got to pet and watch crawl around us on the floor while learning about them. We then went outside and saw more animals in their natural habitats. If you have... More

Enjoyed a beautiful kayak tour today around Felix Neck. Other than the occasional boom from the gun club down stream (why they have one in such a beautiful place I have no idea), this was a quiet trip with very few others. Nice birding with Egrets, plovers, osprey and other shore birds. Wonderful tributaries through the marsh land as well... More
