A SPECIAL SURPRISE
This was such an amazing experience! I would absolutely go back again, and I have already referred quite a few friends should go as well. Such wonderful animals they get to see , experience and interact with.
The Otters were so much fun and so playful it definitely was one of my biggest dreams to come true. The pool is heated, and the staff cannot be nicer. Thank you, it really was an amazing experience and I will definitely be back to see you guys and the Otters!

We visited as part of my daughters Make A Wish trip. What an incredible experience. They went above and beyond to make sure Cassidy as well as the rest of the family had the most amazing experience!
They are clearly committed to the care of their animals and want to share their love and knowledge of each of them with us.
Thank you again to Wendy, Kevin, Brittani, and Dave from the bottom of my heart.

One of the highlights of my life. A true dream come true and an item checked off the bucket list. So thankful to have been able to be part of something so unique. The animals are treated like part of the family and are extremely well taken care of. I enjoyed interacting and learning about all of the creatures.
The highlight of the day was getting a kiss from one of the otters! I will treasure these memories forever. Thank you for opening your home to us, and for all that you do for the animals and children.
