  • This was just ok. During the month of Feb. the females are in heat. So, on that note, when you enter the second pen (where pics r to be taken) the wolves aren't interested. So you are herded back to t...  more »

  • The owners of this beautiful place are very well educated and zoned in to the wolves. They treat them with respect and unconditional love. I took a VIP tour here with my boyfriend today and it was beyond wonderful. 2 hours of learning about the wolves and interacting with them was a once in a life time experience. All of the wolves were in great condition and it was easy to tell they have been extremely well handled since they were just first born to when they retire. I highly recommend the VIP tour to anyone who wants to visit this sanctuary. Hunter, our photographer, took so many pictures it filled up the rest of the storage on my phone so we had to switch to my boyfriends! What a fantastic job!! He did a 5 star job of capturing the majestic animals and how they interacted with us. Our tour guide Ricky was so so wonderful! Oh he was the sweetest and he was BRILLIANT! Will be returning again once I save up enough money! 😉 This was the HIGHLIGHT of our spring break.
  • This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I would highly recommend the private tour even though it is more expensive. You have personal interaction with the wolves and they will take plenty of souvenir pictures using your own camera. We got to go in with three different groups of wolves. Each group had about six wolves. We were able to pet them and even scratch their bellies. You should be aware that the Wolves will try and lick your face and nose. This might be scary for younger children but they do have a minimum age limit of 10 years old to participate and as long as you know to expect this it should not be a problem.
  • I absolutely love the Seacrest Preserve. This was an experience I will never forget. I took my daughter to Seacrest as part of her birthday present and it was the best present ever for her and I both. The wolves are just beautiful. The magic moment came when I made eye contact with a female and blew air on her nose (muzzle greeting per the guide) and she gave me a wolf kiss.....one of God's most majestic and beautiful creatures.The eye contact is something so special. The Wolves have a sincerity about them that's almost spiritual. This can only happen at Seacrest. The people that guide you through are so knowledgeable. You will be educated on wolves and amazed when your done. This is an experience you should not miss. Thank you Seacrest.
  • Fantastic experience! My Wife, brother-in-law and myself took the weekday VIP tour on 1/11/18. Everyone was awesome, very knowledgeable and polite. This trip was for my 23 year old autistic brother-in-law. The staff did a great job making him feel apart of the entire experience, and he had the best time. They take great care of these Wolves. We drove about 9 hours from South Florida to the panhandle and it was worth every penny. GUYS: if you shave your head, or are balding, and have a beard like me, there's a Wolf named Forrest that loves to lick bald heads and beards. You will get unlimited Wolf kisses from him. We will definitely come back for another tour.
  • Great experience. Took the entire family and my wife and kids all loved it. Being around the wolves is a feeling you will never forget. Makes you realize how much these animals mean to the planet.
