There is a reason why this free nature walk is the #1 attraction on TripAdvisor Delray Beach. A boardwalk through wetlands which is handicapped accessible and you see up close all kinds of birds, ducks, gators and other critters.

Here there is a well designed elevated walkway that takes you safely through the reserve . With sharp eyes you will see herons, iguanas, crocodiles. Bring binoculars or cameras with telephoto lenses.

Thank you for your review. However, it appears you have confused us with the Arthur Marshall Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge, as there is no admission to access Wakodahatchee and we do not have a tram tour. Please come visit us at Wakodahatchee soon!

Enjoyed walking through the wetland and being close to the natural habitat. Having the board walk made it accessible to lots of people who would not otherwise be able to partake. Love that there was no entry fee
