Did this late in the summer, what a great trip. Must to do when in the area. You get to touch a lot of live things and walk on the marsh [if you want]. Hosts are very knowledgeable.

Hi Sorry, I just saw this question. Yes, for the most part we can accommodate most handicap issues but we would need to go over details so we can be sure. Give us a call at 609-884-3100 to discuss. Thanks for the interest!
