  • The guided kayak tour around the bay was amazing. The guides Randy and John were excellent and extremely knowledgeable about the ecosystem and all the birds and plants. Highly recommended.

  • Easy to find, went here while visiting relatives as a place to take the kiddos. From a boat indoors that they could play on to a small petting tank to a friendly staff to a variety of activities, overall it was a fun experience. We caught one of the nature walks there which they thought was okay but missed the shark talk which was the activity of the day. Still, they had fun, we learned a couple of things and they hopefully did as well so it was well worth the low price of admittance and there was plenty of other activities to do too if we had more time from a reading room to outdoor activities and more.
  • A hidden jem. Nature trails, guided tours, daily activities, movie theatre, aquariums & a touch tank. This place has everything to keep your family entertained for an entire day
  • Fun place to take the kids and walk some trails. It's hot in Naples in the summer. Winter would be a better choice unless you like getting bit by misquotes.
  • Great place to learn the ecology of Rockery Bay. Volunteers are the best! If you are in the area, do not miss.
  • Great place to visit with the family to learn more about the environment.
