  • We recommend that you dress appropriately for the expected weather conditions, which might include wearing a hat, long pants, and comfortable closed-toe/closed heel walking shoes.
  • Space is limited and reservations are required for tram tours, night walks, and canoe tours. Please call (561) 734-8303 to make or cancel a reservation or for more information.
