Birding at Ft. Zachary State Park

Birding at Ft. Zachary State Park

Will be arriving June 3rd at Mallory Sq and intend to taxi to Ft. Zachary. Are taxis readily available to obtain for return trip back to the pier and how much is cost? Thought of renting car for other points of interest; any thoughts? Must be back on ship by 530pm.

You do not need to rent a car. You can take the Old Town Trolley tour and it is hop on hop off at various spots of interest around town. That should get you to most of the places you want to see. You just need to call the taxi company and they will come out to get you at Fort Zach. Check online for the trolley map and see if that fits your needs. It is a fairly long walk to Fort Zach from the nearest trolley stop, so a taxi is a good idea. (305 296-6666 for one cab company)

FWIW I spent this morning watching several frigate birds searching for their breakfast off the Mallory Square end of the island.

If you dock at Mallory you can walk thru Truman annex all the way to fort Zach, it’s an easy but somewhat long walk as the entrance to the park is still a long way into the park central but we’ve done it. The other option is renting a bike and there are rental bikes right there, not sure of which company but they’ll all deliver. It’s a quick and safe ride per above. If you still want a cab, you’ll need to call one as they can’t drive up to the ship but will have to meet you, again, Truman annex. If you dock at the navy dock, you will only be allowed to get on the trolley, no walking or biking until you get off navy property. I hope that helps
