This was out first visit to the Gulf Breeze Zoo. Our teenage daughter and her friend really enjoyed all of the animal exhibits. The train ride was a nice change from the walking. The conductor was very well educated on the animals, their original habitat and few bits of trivia, here and there. It was great to be able to... More

We love zoos...especially when they are privately owned. They may cost a bit more, but it is worth it. The Gulf Breeze Zoo was no exception! Aside from the heat, we had a wonderful time. Our 15 yr old daughter and 1 yr old son really enjoyed the zoo. There was a great variety of animals and the grounds were... More

Small zoo but has so much to offer. Open daily except Thanksgiving and Christmas. They offer military discount and group rates. You can pay extra for the train ride and feeding the animals. My family always comes here when we visit the Gulf Breeze area. The zoo is clean and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. We will come... More

We had a great time today! I was surrounded by parakeets while I fed them in the bird aviary! The kids were giggling and excited. I was able to feed a giraffe....it licked me with its tongue! Awesome! The petting zoo portion was so cute. I thought for a midsized zoo it was quite nice. The staff were so kind... More

We came here because we like zoos. We brought my 2 year old. My daughter really enjoyed herself. The zoo was okay. Nothing to crazy. You could feed the giraffes, but unless you were 6' tall, it was really difficult! Much of the zoo seemed 'unfinished' or 'under construction'. It just seemed underwhelming for the price of admission. The petting... More

This place is super fun and not to crowded. The bird experience is the best! As well as feeding the giraffes. IF you are in area you should not miss it!.

This is a well done zoo. I am not the biggest fan of cages for animals, And not all animals were in cages, it was a good mix. This is well done for a smaller zoo. Buy two cups of feed because you run out quickly. And buying budgie sticks for the birds is a MUST! I will go back.
