General Visitation
Members need not pre-register for General Visitation, and entry is free! Generally offered weekends in May, September and October, and four days a week from Memorial Day through Labor Day. See the Options by Date calendar for availability (some black-out dates are possible).

Tadpole Tour
NEW in 2017! Members need not pre-register and entry is free! We welcome your “tadpoles” (infants and toddlers) to enjoy select mornings, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, when the animals are active and easier to see without the crowds that come for our guided tours. Offered select weekdays and Saturdays May through September. See the Options by Date calendar for availability.

Staff-Guided Tour
Members are asked to pre-register to help us maintain attendance numbers at appropriate levels for the comfort of guests and animals. Entry is free! Generally offered at 11:00 a.m. on Saturdays in May, September and October, and every weekday from Memorial Day through Labor Day. See the Options by Date calendar for availability (some black-out dates are possible).

Feeding Tour
Members are asked to pre-register because, effective 2017, we have set attendance at a maximum of 75 people per tour. Entry is free! Generally offered on Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00 p.m., from May through October. Members may also register additional guests, not covered under a membership, at no charge. Use promotion code found in the Members Only section of our website to register up to 12 people without pre-payment. Registrations made without the promotional code will require pre-payment, requested at time of registration. See the Options by Date calendar for availability (some black-out dates are possible).
