Swim Encounters

If you've ever wondered what it's like to swim with otters, here's your chance! 


This interactive experience begins with a 1 hour guided tour of our facility led by our experienced and knowledgeable staff.


Immediately following the tour you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with a variety of reptiles, mammals, and even a sloth!


The final portion of the experience is a one-of-a-kind chance to swim alongside Asian small-clawed otters in our climate-controlled saltwater pool!

Pricing & Info

As of May 2021, we implemented a price increase on all of our otter swim tickets. This increase is a response to protect our otter ambassadors safety as they grow older. 

With this increase, we will also be decreasing the number of otter swim experiences sold each year. Tickets will sell out quickly, so reserve yours today! 

Swims are operated daily from 2pm to 5pm, and reservations are required.

Adult Swims:
$280 per person + taxes and fees

Kids Swims:
$225 per person + taxes and fees (Ages 10-15 years)

Hear From Satisfied Guests

This was a great place to visit. My party of 5 did two otter swims, five encounter tours, and five sipping with sloths. My little sister is in a motorized wheel chair she was able to get around. We had to use our portable ramp a couple of times but she had a blast. We all enjoyed our time. The prices are definitely worth it. I would recommend that anyone check out this place for a great family or group event. The otter swim is an amazing event. They definitely want to see you up close and personal. Loved our visit, and thanks to the staff. Of course a big thanks to all the animals.
