Dutton Island Preserve Salt Marsh Tour


Dutton Island Preserve, nestled in Atlantic Beach, lies east of the Intra Coastal Waterway (ICW) with miles of winding tributaries and pristine estuary to explore; so much that you will never cover the same water twice. This ecologically diverse estuary offers incredible views of nesting osprey, bald eagles, heron, wood stork, and many more of Florida’s resident and migratory birds. Along the ICW we will often encounter Atlantic Bottle nose Dolphins that feed and teach their young to hunt in the flowing tidal rivers of the ICW. Seasonally, the West Indian Manatee uses the ICW to travel along and lazily graze its shores. The abundance of sheer beauty is breath taking as you get a real glimpse of what “The Real Florida” has to offer.
