Gulf Breeze Zoo

The Gulf Breeze Zoo is a 50 acre facility featuring hundreds of animals from around the world! The areas largest and best animal attraction. With 850+ animals, covering 137 species of mammal, bird and reptile, we have plenty of monkeys, mobs of kangaroo, flocks of squawkers, cats like crazy, and tons of tortoises!

Ride through herds of free ranging animals on our Safari Line Limited train (see the hippos, gorillas and up close)

Feed the giraffes, sheep, goats, pigs, llamas, birds and much, much more. Opens daily at 9am. For rates and seasonal hours of operation, visit or call Gulf Breeze Zoo at (850) 932-2229. Open daily, rain or shine! Closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day

Take a nostalgic 15 minute narrated train ride on the zoo's classic CP Huntington style locomotive. Watch rhinoceros, deer, antelope, and zebras roam free on our 30 acre preserve. From the train visitors also get a close-up view of our gorilla family and our huge Nile hippos. Train rides run hourly throughout the day.

Visit the Australian Free-Flight Budgiery, where hundreds of colorful parakeets fly around and eat "budgie treat sticks" while perched on your hand!

Hungry? Take a break and dine in while you visit your favorite animals. The zoo's cafe offers traditional favorites such as pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders and children’s meals served with safari hats.

Don't miss trick-or-treating with your favorite animals during Boo at the Zoo held every year during the last two weekends in October. The zoo's festival of holiday lights, ZooLights, begins in November and goes through the end of December. Visit our website for more information.
