Gulf Breeze Zoo


Things are getting wild a few miles outside of Navarre Beach, and it’s an outing you won’t want to miss! Gulf Breeze Zoo is home to an impressive roster of exotic animals with a strong emphasis on conservation and education. Whether you arrive for regular admission or prefer to schedule a private, up-close encounter with one of the residents, every trip to the Gulf Breeze Zoo is unique and sure to wow.

Open daily from 9 – 5, tickets are only $19 for adults and $15.95 for children, but many frequent visitors to Navarre Beach prefer to get a membership. You can also add on a train ride, animal feed cups or a budgie feeding stick for a nominal fee. From giraffe feedings to taking the train to feed the budgies, there are countless ways to customize your trip.

Wild Thing(s)

Hands-on animal encounters are a fantastic way for guests of all ages to form a bond with one of the many residents. You can also schedule a birthday party or other special event on the zoo grounds with group rates and personalized feedings or encounters for all. Take a behind-the-scenes tour, and learn more about the zoo’s inner workings, or schedule a talk with an animal keeper!

There’s also a farm on site to get the real caretaker experience, complete with a petting zoo. At the Watering Hole Café, you can boost your energy levels for another round with an Angus cheeseburger, pizza, Nathan’s hot dog, chicken tenders or kids meals. Who will you visit first at the zoo?
