DetailsClosed
Apr 27, 2018
06:30 pm - 09:30 pm
$ 109.00 7 7 0

Description: This one-of-a-kind tour takes place in the evening and is often around the full moon. Guests visit a remote section of Keewaydin Island, renowned for its shell-strewn beaches and pastel sunsets. Stroll along and enjoy beachcombing until the magical moment when the sun sinks into the Gulf. As darkness gradually enfolds you, begin the leisurely return cruise through the back bays of the reserve, becoming immersed in the sights, sounds and sensations of night in a mangrove-forested estuary. If the tide permits, you will ease by the rookery island where hundreds of herons, egrets and ibis gather for the night.

Difficulty level: Participants must have the physical ability to step down into, and up from, the boat at a dock and walk 1/4 mile across the island and along the beach. Closed-toed shoes are recommended.

Location: Please arrive at launch site (Shell Island Road) 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure time.
