Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary offers a Complimentary Boardwalk Tour beginning at 10:30 am on most days from November through the end of March, and offers a Complementary Boardwalk Tour beginning at 9:30 am on some days the rest of the year. In April 2017 this tour will be offered every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday beginning at 9:30am. It will also be offered on the first two Sundays of April beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The Corkscrew Boardwalk Tour is one and-a-half hours long and is on the one mile short loop of the Boardwalk.
There is no additional charge beyond the regular admission of $14 per adult; National Audubon Members with ID receive $4 off per party of 2; $6 for college students; $4 for children 6 to 18 years old, and Free for children under 6 and Friends of Corkscrew Members.
During the summer and fall (April 1st through end of October), space is limited to 12 to 24 participants. Visitors should preregister on Eventbrite and then check in the day of the tour by 9:15 am at our admissions desk, and then meet your guides in the visitor center.
A Corkscrew environmental educator will conduct the guided walks, offering visitors a unique opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the awakening swamp, from its cypress forest and lettuce lakes to its pine thickets and open prairies.
This gentle, pristine wilderness dates back 800 years and offers visitors a glimpse of long-ago Florida and a premier environmental learning experience. More than 200 bird species are permanent residents of the Sanctuary, including egrets, ibis, heron, limpkin and anhinga. Barred owls nest near the boardwalk and add their distinctive hoot to the aviary symphony. Winter visitors include pine warblers and painted buntings.

We recommend that you bring water, bug spray, binoculars, and a camera when you explore the Boardwalk.
Water bottles, bug spray, and binocular rentals are available in the Blair Audubon Visitor Center.
Food is not permitted on the Boardwalk.
