The Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge with thirteen islands spread over an area of 891 acres is a safe haven for around twenty thousand birds that use the westernmost tip of Seashore Key and Snake Key as their breeding sites. Egrets, Night Herons, Brown Pelicans, White ibis, Oystercatchers, Avocates, Cormorants, Spoonbills are found in abundance at the Seahorse Key rookery. The white, red and black Mangroves are the most distinct features of the reserve. You can explore the soft sandy beaches, have a picnic or go out for kayaking and swimming. With a bit of luck, you can encounter Manatees and Dolphins too. Autumn is the best time to visit here with the abundance of songbirds, shorebirds, butterflies, fishes and predators. Don’t miss the romantic lighthouse that offers a panoramic view.
