“Kayaking the Mangrove and Grassbeds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

if you have a kayak or arrange one from an outfitter this area is amazing place to explore. The waters are shallow- the grass beds thick and the shore is lined with red mangroves. Birds roost on the third island to the north -Get outdoors and explore....

“Great place for a leisurely walk.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

A wonderful area to wander about and enjoy Florida
fauna and flora. Well off the tourist beat. Bring your binocs, your bird book and plant guide, and some mosquito repellant just in case (after all, it's Florida).

“Great nature trail!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

ORCA is one of the only places in Vero that has a great nature trail. It winds through all sorts of different habitats, with plenty of opportunities for viewing Florida's wildlife! There is a really awesome tower that overlooks parts of the Indian River Lagoon and is great for bird-watching. It's a nice long walk, especially enjoyable in the winter when it's cooler and there aren't as many bugs.
