Because we have had such a huge interest in reservations, we’ve decided to develop an ALTERNATIVE OTTER ENCOUNTER that will be called Otterz Only Playland. We will be creating another program that is still fun, interactive, and engaging, but less direct contact and non-swimming. This program will simultaneously provide enrichment, exercise, and entertainment for the otters.
All of our programs are voluntary for the otters and if we do too many swim encounters then the otters no longer enjoy it and it can become an undesirable situation. Your safety and our otters’ welfare are our two top priorities and this is why this type of interaction is not available on a huge commercial scale. The schedule is based on that and making sure that we keep availability for the Make-A-Wish kids as well. This program will still include visiting and interacting with all of the same other animals that are a part of the Otter Swim Encounters.
2018 Playland Otter Encounter
8 spots that can be reserved individually at $300/person
2.5-3 hour group guided tour that includes 30-45 minutes indirectly playing with our awesome otters through their new interactive Otterz Only Playground AND interaction with at least 7 different species of animals. Minimum age – 10 years old (every two children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian)
Due to extremely high demand, at this time we are only able to offer free/discounted encounters to qualifying children visiting us through Make-A-Wish Foundation. Please contact your local Make-A-Wish chapter to see if your child qualifies.
