Had a wonderful free tour that explained the migration habits of different birds that come through South Padre Island!

We did see some nice bird's here, and a small alligator too! We rode our bikes here from town, and it was an easy ride. There is an awesome view from the top of the building. Small fee to get in seemed reasonable.

Escaped here after a long day at a seminar across the street. Was a nice walk on the board walk and got up close to some really cool birds and alligators! Well worth the $6 entry fee as I spent a very long time wandering around taking pictures!

If you love nature this is a great stop for wildlife viewing and to learn about nature. Guided walks are given throughout the day and are both interesting and informative.

This place was created among the towering condos and provides a place for bay fish to spawn and birds and other endemic wildlife to survive. An extensive boardwalk allows easy walking around and through some very nice native vegetation and the birding can be very good.

This is a nice facility. The boardwalks over the wetlands are good. The staff in my experience is more “volunteers” and uneven in their expertise. And I have a difficult time reconciling paying these guys $5.00 a head, when you can go to the convention center, right next door, and get the same boardwalks, plus a nice brushy habitat area, with a water feature and more expertise, for nothing. Save your money. The convention center is just as good, and it’s free.

We enjoyed our visit here immensely. We saw an alligator in addition to a wide variety of birds, including pink spoonbills. There are a variety of displays in the center in addition to a small gift shop. If you love nature, you will appreciate this wonderful and worthy effort. Plenty of parking available. The only downside was the smell from the sewage processing center adjacent, but it was minor and didn't last other upon entering the center.

Loved the walk around the center. Really enjoyed seeing the birds! We will be back again. We went during HallowWings and enjoyed the butterfiles as well.

Took a walk around their boardwalk to view the birds and fish. Not a lot of birds there this time of year. Had fun watching the fish though and the view from the tower was great.

Nice day of viewing mainly shore birds with a bonus to see the white crowned pigeon that had taken up residence in a tree near the center.
