“Nature Preserve at Port A”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Enjoyed this, however, the smell is strong, so if that bothers you - don't go. Didn't see the resident alligators, but saw many species of birds, saw turtles, and lizards. Good break from the beach/sun.

We had fun watching the dolphins jump and play beside the ships coming through the channel. I got several great pictures.

“Free attraction!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Ride bikes, walk in the trails, fishing off pier or seawall, great view of the colorful sunsets, and watch dolphins ride with the ships that come through the ship channel. I recommend bringing a camera.

“great walking trails”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We saw so much birdlife. The walking trails along the boardwalks are excellent. We had the whole place to ourselves. This was the nicest place in Port A.
