Visit Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

We're open with reduced hours. Online registration is required.

We have opened the Sanctuary as we continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in Collier County and the world. We are committed to protecting our visitors, volunteers, and staff from the novel coronavirus, and because our boardwalk is less than six feet wide, we must maintain a low visitation rate to prevent crowding. 

New hours: Open Wednesday - Sunday, 7 a.m. - 1 p.m. with the last admission at noon. Closed Monday and Tuesday. 

Registration is required for all visitors at this link. No walk-ins will be accepted.

Friends of Corkscrew Members may reserve tickets at this link. Membership card and photo ID are required upon arrival.
