Nature & Outdoors

The Pensacola Bay Area is the perfect place to go green and get back to nature. In fact, the Pensacola area has been designated as a hot spot for biodiversity in plant and animal life by the Nature Conservancy.

Guided eco-tours by foot, kayak or boat are available from local outfitters who know where to go to spot wildlife. National and state parks are always fun to explore on your own, and you may be lucky enough to happen upon an amazing sight such as otters on a river bank, an impromptu dolphin show in the Gulf, a sea turtle nest or perhaps a rare sighting of the endangered Snowy Plover.

Snorkel to see sand dollars, starfish, crabs and fish. Join a ranger-led nature tour at Gulf Islands National Seashore to explore life in the brackish marshes or hidden in the shade of tall pines and gnarled live oaks. Hike or bike along the Edward Ball Nature Trail. Canoe, kayak or tube down spring-fed rivers in the “Canoe Capital of Florida,” and go bird watching during spring and fall migration. The Perdido Watershed is a picturesque area for canoeing and kayaking. Here, visitors can spot wildlife and get close to dolphins in Perdido Bay or enjoy miles of interrupted natural beauty along the protected Perdido River.

From the country’s largest tract of protected shoreline to Florida’s only natural bluffs, there are so many reasons the Pensacola Bay Area is the perfect place to indulge your love of nature and the outdoors.
