How it all works!

Crocodile Encounter has been offering, with tremendous demand, the opportunity for families to come to our facility and experience the crocodiles and wildlife maintained at our nationally recognized crocodilian center. Our goal is to give you and your family a unique, educational, wildlife experience. Crocodile Encounter is at our core an educational organization. We want you to appreciate and understand wildlife and the role all species play in keeping our world wonderful for us and our children. No reservation is required for any public tour. You just arrive by the tour time and you are all set. We look forward to your vist and creating lasting memories for your family.

1. You may pay upon arrival via cash, check, or credit card.

2. You may bring long leaf romaine lettuce(#1 choice), or other long leaf lettuces for your tortoise feeding experience. Do not use the premade 'salad' lettuce mixes. You want the romaine head with the long leaves. Much better for your kiddos to hold while feeding! If you forget yours we have it here for purchase but it is cheaper when you bring your own.

3. Upon arrival to the facility you will enter the gift shop for check in and some brief introductory information prior to your tour.

Your tour will last between 1:15-1:45 minutes depending on the animals behaviour and schedule for that day as well as your interactions with your guide. On occasion tours may exceed two hours but we typically try to maintain a a 1:15- 1:30 minute pace. You will not forget this experience. Awesome animals, great guides, small crowds. A wildlife event you will want to do over and over.
