We will run this for the months of December and January.
We stayed at Marineland on our way down the ICW in October. Beautiful place. Very nice people. The beach is across the street. Nice hiking or biking trail. The ecotour is wonderful. The guides have great knowledge and love what they are doing. The dolphins at Marineland are well taken care off. They have a lot of interactive programs with the dolphins.
If you look for a lot of action this is not the place to stay. If you love nature and some quiet time you have to stop. We were going to stop for a night and stayed for 10 days.
If it was up to me, I would probably still be there.
Our boat is at Marineland Marina now and we love it there. We cruised the ICW south this fall and plan to visit the Keys in the spring. Will return to Early Bird a few times in between work to enjoy the quiet natural setting and friendly staff and boaters there.
