We didn't see any horses but great shelling. We took a boat from the City docks. We wanted to go to the other big island but the inlet was to rough and the boats could not go out.

We anchored near shore and made several excursions in our dinghy. We took the inner trail but were disappointed to miss the wild horses. The anchor site was very good with favorable winds and currents. The beach was clean and fairly quiet.

We spent a great day at the Preserve. We were able to do an easy kayak trip over to the island. We hiked a few of the clearly marked trails and quickly spotted some of the wild horses. We had a nice picnic lunch on the beach. Just remember to take water and lots of sunscreen!

Anchored here in Taylor Creek you can dinghy up no problem at all, the inner green trail and outer blue trail very well marked. The outer blue gets a bit muddy in placed so wear appropriate shoes . Very peaceful indeed.
