What are you doing on Mondays and Tuesdays? In case you didn’t know, you can book a private animal experience at Living Coast Discovery Center. Turtles experiences are only on Mondays and other animals are available Tuesdays as well. You can’t touch the turtles with your hands but you can experience feeding and petting them with a brush. The turtle swim up really close for great pictures.
When you book a private animal encounter, you will also receive a VIP tour to see all the animals at Living Coast. We went as a family not long ago, and it was so worth it! We had the whole Discover Center to ourselves and not only experienced the turtles but the entire aquarium, touch pound, stingrays & shark encounter, birds, lizards and so much more!
We learned so much and were able to ask all the questions to our hearts content in a personal setting. It was a do it at your own pace, fun experience for the whole family. There were indoor and outdoor exhibits to explore, and we also had snack time at a beautiful patio area with a view. We highly recommend this experience to anyone.
The price is amazing. Currently individual members ($40 membership) can book a private animals experience for 10 people at $150. You can invite the whole family and invite another family along too. It would be a great bday gift experience for kids and friends.
- Arrive early (We had trouble finding the entrance and needed the extra time. )
- Bring snacks and drinks for the break time I mentioned. (They do not sell food there.)
- Save time for the trails on the property. I heard they are beautiful but we missed it this time and will need to return.
- Don’t forget to get membership first before booking the encounter for a deep discount.
