Otter Encounter

Booking Information


The Experience


***Currently our pool and enclosure for the otters is not completed as of yet.  Our expected completion is first week of September.   We have altered our experience to include: playtime inside that is air conditioned.  There is a couch and chairs inside for you to sit on for watching, but you are more than welcome sitting on the floor to interact with them.     

During the two hour experience you will be in the pool with a group of playful otters!  They love to interact, and play as you swim and feed them.  We also have kangaroo, mini pigs, tortoise, mini ponies and more! 


     Our maximum group size is generally less than 6 people. The encounter will happen inside and out.  1 hour will be spent inside watching the otters play and being able to interact with them. The next hour will be spent outside by the pool watching and interacting with them as they swim and play.  We have lounge chairs on the pool deck, as well as a gazebo for shade.  Our minimum age to swim with the otters is 10, but younger guests are welcome to feed and observe from the pool deck.  All guests must sign the facility waiver when visiting Blue Hills Animal Sanctuary.  Payment in advance is necessary to reserve your space for the encounter.
