A nice place for a short visit to watch the local birds... the deck is open all the time... in side the building is a nice exhibit of the wildlife and habitat. There is no charge to enter they did have a small gift shop.

Little Cayman has no taxis so I rode a bicycle to the Booby Pond Nature Reserve in the afternoon after diving. The pond is not attractive to view - pond scum and some trash in it. The red footed boobies roost there at night so...More

I was there in August- maybe other months are better- but to me, this was little more than a swampy, stinky bird sanctuary. (If I was a bird, I'd move!)

Very informative talk with the guy looking after the reserve, about the birds and the wild life on the island.
