If you are stuck indoors and need a birdy distraction here is a beautiful page filled with Audubon’s favorite bird photos, videos, and stories.
Our address is:
375 Sanctuary Road, Naples, Florida 34120
- 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily, year-round. Last admission to the boardwalk is one hour before closing time, meaning no one may enter the boardwalk later than 4:30 p.m.
All visitors must be off the boardwalk before the closing time unless a special program is being conducted by the Corkscrew staff. Some evenings during the fall and spring, we offer "Corkscrew After Hours." This is the only time that we allow visitors on the boardwalk after dark. This regulation was established to minimize the impact on wading birds that roost or nest near the boardwalk.
This regulation applies each month of the year. Vehicles found in the parking area after the closing time may be towed at the owner's expense.
Be advised that Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary closes our boardwalk and visitor center when winds reach 40 mph. This is extremely high winds, which are rare, and unlikely. However, please check the weather and contact us to determine if we have closed, before you make the trip out to our location.
Warning about flies:
Please leave your pets at home where they are comfortable. For everyone's safety, we allow only service animals on the boardwalk.
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary has ample free parking. Please lock your car, leave nothing visible to passers-by and always take valuables with you.
Admission is good for two back-to-back days with your receipt. For example, if you come out on a Monday your receipt will also get you in the very next day on Tuesday! Ticket prices include self-guided access to the boardwalk and Blair Audubon Visitor Center. On days when guided walks are offered, they are complimentary with the price of admission.
