Reviewed 23 October 2013

Awesome local birding center was a real surprise. A quiet respite from the hustle of tourists...views a many migrating rare bird, fish, plants, alligators, and total quiet. Try to go either early or late...amazing...bring binoculars. (NO PETS...the alligators are there).

Beautiful day at Port A today. Got a gator call on my phone, and summoned one big gator, came right up to the dock. Very intimidating looking! was this Boots?

We enjoyed the scenery and the boardwalks out into the wetlands. Although not a "birder" I did enjoy the interesting variety of wildlife to be scene. And yes, we did get a glimpse of an alligator!!!!

The best place to see birds, especially when they're migrating in the Spring or Fall.
Please be respectful of the birders taking pictures. People come here from all over the world to take pictures. We try to whisper and walk softly.
If you're lucky, you'll get to see the alligators.
Breath taking views; I've actually taken pictures here of friends and family that turned out very well.
A nice place to relax and reflect.
