Seahorse Key Open House

July 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Refuge has scheduled five Open Houses at Seahorse Key for 2023.


Wednesday, March 15, 2023 (rain date March 16 or 17)
Wednesday, March 29 (rain date March 30 or 31)
Saturday, July 1
Friday, October 13 (rain date October 14)

Visitors can walk up to to the Light Station and cross over to the beach on the far side of the island. It is a beautiful, adventuresome experience.

Open Houses are free once you arrive at the Refuge island. However, visitors must arrange their own transportation. Shuttles are provided for a fee by tour companies in Cedar Key, or visitors can arrive by private boat.

Important Information

Seahorse Key is an island almost 3 miles from Cedar Key. Access is only by boat. There are no amenities, such as food or water on the island. Rest room facilities are limited. 

Should there be a medical or other emergency requiring professional assistance or evacuation, response times could be lengthy.
Please plan with this in mind.
