Boggy Point, a boat launch, provides the visitor  with a good view of Robinson Island, which is an important nesting area for waders and terns, plus roosting areas for other seabirds. Most of Robinson Island is off limits to birders, thus this vantage point provides a viewing site for birders with minimal disturbance to the birds. It also gives an alternate view of Perdido Pass.

DIRECTIONS: If following the directions in the Coastal Birding Trail brochure, continue west on AL 182 to AL 161 [2.0], turn right (north) and continue to Marina Road on the right [0.8], turn right (east) and proceed to the end of the peninsula [1.5] ending at the Boggy Point Boat Launch, an Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources location. Amenities include restroom facilities. Upon completing your visit, return to AL 161 and proceed across the intersection to the Catman Road parking lot to access the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail system.
