Otter Encounter

Get up close & personal with our cutest residents

Our Otters love to play, and they will love it if you come visit them in a unique behind the scenes experience at Butterfly Creek.

Your experience will include a guided tour into the otter enclosure by one of our experienced Keepers. You will be introduced to our five cute Asian Small-Clawed Otters and our Keeper will highlight all the unique behaviours and needs of otters.

Best of all, you will get the chance to hand feed them in their enclosure. Don’t forget your camera, our Keepers will happily take your photos while you are interacting with them.

An otter encounter at Butterfly Creek is an amazing experience, book yours today.
