In the spring and summer months, you might spot a raptor or bird of prey on the job at the Beach Club, keeping the boat-tailed grackles in line. But guests are also able to see these fascinating birds up close and experience first-hand the ancient art and 4,000-year-old tradition of falconry. Handle a raptor, take a private walk with a falconer, and have a raptor fly to you.

Falconry requires advance reservations and is easily booked by calling:
