Went on the small guided tour. Lasted over an hour. Guide had some good knowledge of the area. Extremely interesting tour, the old houses there are super cool to look at and see how people lived here 100 years ago.

Great nature center. We took two four year old boys, they really enjoyed seeing the trees, spider webs, parrots, iguanas and the animals in the hospital units. Very fun day, worthwhile to support!

There was much more here than I expected! Touch tanks, houses to explore, a small museum, bird hospital and a long hiking trail that ended in a beautiful water view where we saw 4 manatees. Lovely gift shop!

No, no kayaking for me. But, had my (grown) son been along with us, he would have definately pronounced it "pretty good".
