Guided Tours

Enjoy the beautiful bird life of South Padre Island on a nice and easy morning stroll on our boardwalk through stunning tidal wetlands along the Laguna Madre as well as a freshwater oasis with our Naturalists Educators as your guide. A great diversity of birds are seen on the wetlands during the Spring season, which include all of our favorite resident coastal specialties in their brightest breeding plumages such as Roseate Spoonbill, Reddish Egret, Clapper Rail, Tricolored Heron, Brown Pelican, and Black Skimmer! The SPI Birding & Nature Center is also an important pit stop to a plethora of migratory songbirds and shorebirds during the spectacle of spring bird migration! Start the day with the best of nature on South Padre Island!
