A must see while on the island. Self guided tour with an abundance of wildlife. Bring a hat, binoculars,a camera and good walking shoes.

Great boardwalks around the bay area with several shaded stops. It can get crowded on a nice day. Plant to spend at least an hour wandering the paths. The day we were there two crocodiles had taken up residence on the shore to sun themselves. Make sure to stop at the Convention Center garden area. If flowers are blooming, butterflies are everywhere.

The tourist center has lots to look at and there are 2 great videos to watch on how they release the baby sea turtles. It's a 10 minute drive around the area, well worth the time.

We love this center and its vast boardwalk. Always watch the short film and birding and sealife on the island. Always listen to staff words of advice. Always walk the boardwalk, short or long version. This time we saw one of the elusive alligators, a snowy egret, and several roseate spoonbills.

There were so many different species of birds. Fun to watch in their own habitat. Actually saw a couple where one bird wanted to be alone and was so crabby with another bird, entertaining. Also saw a couple big alligators sunning themselves on the shoreline. Fun watching the crabs swimming around as well. Nicely done!
