“Lovely place and so helpful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Loved the displays that help you familiarise with the flora and fauna and the very helpful staff/volunteers. You can also use the viewing platform at any time even when the indoor part is closed.

Nice place to go to in Little Cayman to watch the birds, recommended, and just a few hundred yards from the airport

“Great stop on our bike tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Our resort offered bikes for guests, so we visited the booby pond one afternoon. The office has a lot of good information about critters and fauna native to the island. The day we were there, we saw a lot of frigates, egrets and boobies. You can only see the boobies through the telescopes, but take your time scanning the trees. We found a pair of them perching in their nest with at least 4 babies.

“Great visitor centre and shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

The centre has good telescopes (free) on the viewing decks to see Frigate birds and boobies. They are quite a long way off though. There are viewing platforms further down the pond as well.
The visitor centre is brilliant. I had a delightful long chat with Tara. It's probably got the best girlie shopping on the island with jewellery, souvenirs and clothes that are far better value than the terrible pricey resort shops. There's also a huge book exchange.

“Rare boobie birds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

The Little Cayman boobie birds a treat for bird lovers to see! The reserve not too beautiful, but unique and the boobies love it! Worth seeing the rare birds!
