  • Very educational trip. Staff was well educated and helpful, also worked very well with the kids learning to feed the birds and have them sit on their shoulders and wrists. Great experience!  more »
  • My family was introduced to Sweetie (a Cockatoo) upon arrival, who was a big hit! The entire place had a great family feel, while learning about the birds. Highly recommend a visit. Our kids were 6 an...  more »

  • This is a hidden gem in the middle of Pensacola. The staff are amazing, the birds are wonderful, and I can't say enough good about it. Make sure to spend time with sweetie and lulu, they are such love sponges. For the bad, the park is a bit dated and needs some maintenance, but nothing that is bothersome. Also, we did receive a decent bite while here, but it was my own fault that caused it, and seeing as it was my first time with these birds it was pretty expected. (The macaw later perched on my shoulder for a long while) Just listen to the workers and go slow and the chances of being bit are almost nil. If you can't tell, it wasn't enough to take a star for.
  • This is a great place to take kids for a little while. They give you food to feed the birds with and you can walk around as long as you like. There's no water so make sure to bring some with you!
  • The facility is not what I expected. I was expecting better. The property needs maintenance. Some of the cages had mold growing on the ceiling. The birds are not protected if a hurricane were to hit the area.
  • There are so many different birds here. The sanctuary staff answer questions and talk about each bird. Each admission is given a container of sliced apples and peanuts to share with the birds. We had a blast and will be back.
  • My mom and I enjoyed it greatly and already want to return! So much to see and learn. If you don't like how it looks, donate money to help it look better!

Where to stay in Pensacola

You'll find places to stay throughout Pensacola, but reserve a place downtown for the best local atmosphere and access to nearby beaches. Downtown Pensacola is on the water, and it features a collection of inns and bed and breakfasts in historical buildings and upscale tower hotels. The national chain hotels and motels along Interstate 10 by the Davis Highway and Pensacola Blvd. exits provide budget-friendly options within driving distance of downtown. It might be tempting to choose one of the budget motels along Highway 90 just west of downtown, but these reside in a rundown area. If you're arriving to spend most of your time by the ocean, stay on Pensacola Beach or Perdido Key, which sit just outside the city limits.
