On July 10, the staff at Tarpon Bay Explorers celebrated the second anniversary of the opening of the new concession building in the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge. No celebration is complete without cake, and staff and guests enjoyed a Bailey’s Bakery cake proclaiming “Celebrating 2 Years In Our New Facility. Thank You USFWS!” 

The Explorers work in partnership with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and offer kayak, canoe, bicycle and pontoon boat rentals, fishing charters and guided tours of the Refuge via kayak, boat and tram. 

Come by 900 Tarpon Bay Road to see the beautiful facility, which boasts a wonderful nature-themed gift shop and magnificent views of Tarpon Bay. For more information on rentals and programs, contact the Explorers by calling 472-8900 or online at www.tarponbayexplorers.com.
