  • We stopped here for a Rainy Day activity. We were impressed with the passion of the people we met. We listened to 3 talks about the beaches, turtles and snakes. The displays are small but the experience was worth a visit.
  • What a waste of time! Very small walk-through area inside that has displays about keeping the ocean clean - took only a couple minutes to get through. No turtles on exhibit, only a couple snakes and a tarantula. The outdoor "nature trail" is a very short raised walkway that ends at a kayak/canoe launch open to the public.
  • The employees are so friendly, and the excursions are awesome!
  • Night beach camp fire was fun for the kids
  • Just starting up... didn't have much.. hopefully will be better
