See What Capt Hiram Recommends

Walk on the Wild Side

If you are looking to explore some of the area’s wildlife, then you will definitely want to visit Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge. Pelican Island is only about 15 minute from Captain Hiram’s Resort, and it is definitely worth the trip. While visiting Pelican Island, you will see brown pelicans, over 140 other species of birds, sea mammals like manatees, and of course plenty of fish. In fact, if you are lucky, you may see such fish species as goby, flounder, sea trout, American eel, and even mackerel. Pelican Island is the perfect place to spend a peaceful afternoon exploring some of Florida’s exciting wildlife. Of course, you will work up quite the appetite doing all of this exploring. So when you are finished, make your way back to Captain Hiram’s Resort for a delicious meal at Blackfins. It is a great spot to unwind with a cocktail overlooking the beautiful riverfront.
