Guests will be washed ashore as “Castaways” and come together to experience entertainment, up-close animal encounters, and selection of signature bites prepared by local restaurants. Guests will learn about the role they play on the health of our oceans and have the opportunity to support the education and conservation programs that will be developed and implemented in 2017 and beyond. Zoobilee will delight and entertain in ways it has never done. An event you do not want to miss.
