Opening Times & Admission

From November 12th to 30th we will be open between 11am and 3pm.

Visits are very informal during November. 

At this time of year the butterflies fly best on bright sunny mornings. Later in the day lower light levels will make them less active. Please remember also that butterfly numbers are declining through November as we approach the overwintering period and we do not have the large numbers on the wing that we have earlier in the year.
The feeding times at 11.30 am, 2.00pm  are the best times to see and enjoy the otters.
Don't forget David and our keepers Chloe and Kiera are always on hand to talk about the otters and our conservation work at otter feeding time and any other time during your visit.

We are open for "Otter Experiences" throughout the year but pre-booking is essential.

Dont forget our keepers are on hand to help visitors get the most from their visit, make sure to bring your camera.

We regret dogs are not permitted  (dogs are usually well behaved but the otters go bonkers!)
However we have a large car park with shady areas (come early) and a lovely walk beside the river Dart where your dog can run and swim. Your ticket allows re entry throughout the day giving you the opportunity to leave someone with your dog at all times while it remains outside.

We are wheelchair friendly but some of the fences around the otter pens are too high to see over while seated so we always ask those using wheelchairs to chat to our keepers who will help you find the best vantage points.
Don't forget we always advise where animals and wildlife are concerned for good health and hygene reasons always wash your hands after your visit.
