“Nice place to stop”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Stopped off en route to Seward and saw loads of violet-backed swallows, various waterfowl (and a moose!). Very pleasant walk round the boardwalk.

“A nice quick stop”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

No fee for parking so it is worth the stop. We spent about 20 minutes bird watching and saw a wide variety. It was extremely windy in May so jackets were definitely needed.

“A Mini Walkabout”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The boardwalk is the perfect place to stretch your legs and take a walk along the Potter Marsh. Lots of birds to see and the occasional moose wanders through as well. Great for photos.

This was a nice stop after visiting Homer. We walked the boardwalk, looking for birds. Nice for kids too.

“Bird watchers paradise”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

This coastal sanctuary is amazing in the spring. Lots of migating and nesting birds that come here at this time of the year. There is also a nice boardwalk that surrounds the sanctuary. Only negative thing is the firing range nearby that takes away from the experience but does not seem to bother the birds.
