“Nice place by the beach! Easy to find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

They take very good care of the wildlife. The cages are spacious and clean with nice, knowledgable and friendly staff. For a place that's not very big they had a decent selection of local birds. A very good place to spend an hour watching the birds and a must see for any bird watcher!

“Very friendly and welcoming, great place to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

They are doing great work here, and they are doing it with volunteers and donations. A very worthy cause and a great place to visit. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and Luna the owl is beyond cute. It's not very large, but there are many birds there that are difficult to see in the wild. We will definitely be back again.

Very peaceful and quite romantic park. Best to see sunset with beach chair and bottle of wine. Don't forget to visit and donate and peace river wild life center. Excellent job by all the volunteers at the center.

“Kayak and fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

There are fishing docks at the head of the channel. Boats passing by all the time. You can rent kayaks from itstimekayak @941-255-3686 (they deliver) and go through the ponce tunnels in the mangroves. Sooo quiet. Easy path to follow. It's so cool to be surrounded by mangroves, steps away from the harbor. They also have guided trips through there too.

“great place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Bird Sanctuary is a great visit, or just have a picnic, fish, watch dolphins and boats sitting along the banks of Charlotte Harbor. We live close enough to visit often and is a wonderful spot to watch the sunset- glorious !
