  • What kind of wildlife can I see there?

    Amelia Island State Park is on the eastern portion of the Great Florida Birding Trail. That means you'll have a chance to see water fowl and birds like piping plovers, black skimmers, brown pelicans and the threatened least tern. Some parts of the park have been closed off to protect the terns' nesting areas. If you look into the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, you might see the endangered right whale or a pod of dolphins.
  • Should I make a reservation for a guided horse ride on the beach?

    Yes. Kelly Seahorse Ranch offers guided horseback rides along the shore. Rides are offered daily at 10am, 12pm, 2pm, and 4pm. For reservations and pricing, call 904-491-5166.
