Rookery Bay Sunset Cruise

This one-of-a-kind tour takes place as the sun begins to hang low in the sky in the beautiful Rookery Bay. Guests will have the opportunity to observe the famous bird rookery island as hundreds of pelican, herons, egrets and ibis gather for the night, cruise around remote parts of the reserve in search of unique wildlife, and if tides permit visit a remote section of Keewaydin Island, renowned for its shell-strewn beaches and pastel sunsets. Enjoy the estuary and/or the beach 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.
