Milo is the cutest

Out of the encounters I did, this one was by my far my favorite! Milo was just the cutest and seemed so happy to be with us. We learned a lot about him and how to care for our environment to make sure the wild animals are safe and can live long life like him. I would 10/10 recommend this encounter.

UNREAL!

about 2 years ago
This was an unreal experience! Seals are such beautiful and smart animals, and I’m so glad I got to meet Milo and his son Ollie. The trainers showed off how intelligent these animals were by showing us basic tricks. Most of these tricks are learned as ways to make it easier for the trainers to care for them whether it’s brushing their teeth or having them get into specific positions to check their health. This was such a memorable experience, and I’m so grateful I was able do it.

Loved all the encounters I did!

The animal encounters I experienced at the Gulfarium were hands down one of the best things I've ever experienced. I would highly recommend these encounters to anyone willing to feed a 200 lb turtle, throw your arm around a seal, hold a baby alligator or rub down a dolphin that has her eyes closed in enjoyment. If you are looking to for a way to bring a little enchantment into your life ANY of the animal encounters at the Gulfarium is the way to do it.
