Nassau Bay is one of those wild and wonderful places! It is located right on the doorstep of one the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States. Home to a variety of wildlife and nestled at the top of Clear Lake which is also in itself a busy boating mecca during the summer. It has also been our home for the past three years for ourselves and our good old boat Stargazer.

This hidden gem is a 76-acre wetland area that is connected to Nassau Bay.  It features an extensive nature trail with informational signs and benches along the way. This region takes you along the coast where you will find rookeries and be wowed by the number of egrets, herons and Roseate Spoonbills, and Ospreys clearly visible along the shore. You may even get a glimpse of an alligator or two!
