  • We stopped in on a whim after visiting a nearby park. What a neat little place! A tour is $7 (price raise recently due to a spike in needed rescue care), but worth every penny knowing the funds help.....  more »
  • My teenage daughter & I took a tour. We enjoyed seeing the variety of rescued animals. My daughter was disappointed that she wasnt allowed to hold an animal. We did get to touch the milk snake...  more »

  • What a wonderful place to visit for yourself & also take your children . We were allowed to handle as many animals as possible but there are some that you just don't need nor want to handle. They have much more than sea life & save as many as possible. They try to release as many as possible back to their natural habitat but some are too badly injured. They have a permanent home here so please donate generously as the employees truly love these animals & want the best for them. A well hidden gem in the area.
  • Went here expecting more but still pleased with the experience. Kids had a great time, for the most part, and there was a nice variety of animals. I did take issue with the lack of ‘animal’ time, though; it felt very rushed during the small tour they give you. Also, many reviews say you can touch the animals or show pictures where the volunteer has the animal out, but this was not the case. I’m sure it has something to do with the volunteers experience, whether or not they’re busy, or maybe it has just changed. Still worth the visit and will most likely return.
