About Nature Center - Omni Amelia Island Resort

Join an experienced naturalist on a bike, Segway, kayak, paddleboard or new pedalboard tour discovering birds, turtles, edible plants, night creatures and crabs. Several tours are designed for children and include educational crafts. Pedalboarding is our newest way of exploring the tidal salt marsh.  These innovative boards, similar to a stair stepper, use fins to propel you through the water and cover distance with ease. Stop by for Critter Talk to visit with the local animal rescues or to see Buddy the parrot, feed the turtles, rent a fishing pole, or build your very own Tanner the Turtle, resort mascot, doll using the Build-A-Turtle station. Create a miniature sized Tanner, make a wish and choose from a variety of outfits to complete the look! Youth summer camps available. The Nature Center is located at Omni Amelia Island Resort and is open daily to resort guests and the public.
