Fodor's Review

Reached only by boat, this officially designated Urban Wilderness Area showcases coastal hammock island and contains a mangrove swamp that provides a critical habitat for manatees, gopher tortoises, gray foxes, raccoons, and armadillos. County-operated boat shuttles run from the dock at Sullivan Park 10–3 on weekends (on the hour only). Shuttles return to the mainland on the half hour, with the last one departing the island at 4:30 pm. Amenities include two nature trails, one of which is a boardwalk, while the other leads to an observation platform.
