WOLF ENCOUNTER TOURS
This rare opportunity to go into an enclosure with wolves requires a strict dress code to ensure the safety of the Seacrest Wolves and the comfort of our visitors. Wolves are very intelligent, as well as curious of many human dress items. They must be protected by preventing the opportunity for them to obtain various non-natural items. If you are not compliant, you will not be able to enter wolf enclosures or go on our educational tours - NO EXCEPTIONS.
Seacrest Staff will be with you throughout the duration of your tour. All persons entering an enclosure will be required to fill out a waiver. While most of our animals are socialized, they are still wild. Our first responsibility is to care for and protect them. Our animals will not perform or pose unnaturally nor do anything they do not want to do. We will NOT subject them to stressful situations. We reserve the right to shorten any interaction at the discretion of staff if they determine it is in the best interest of any our animals.
Seacrest Wolf Preserve, Inc. owns all legal rights to all photos taken at Seacrest Wolf Preserve. NO PHOTOS ARE ALLOWED TO BE TAKEN OF OUR WOLVES THROUGH THE FENCES WITH ANY DEVICE (digital cameras, cell phones, or disposable cameras), AT ANY TIME. Visitors attending our Saturday Group Tour may ONLY use disposable cameras during the tour. VIP Tour guests may bring ONE device for Seacrest Staff to use to take pictures of your Tour. Additionally, Seacrest offers photographers the opportunity to capture exceptional images of our beautiful wolves in stunning, natural habitats.

SMOKING and vaping
No smoking or vaping is allowed during tours. No juuls, e-cigarettes, vaping, or tobacco products of any kind are allowed inside the wolf enclosures. We have a designated smoking area behind our parking area, and we ask that all cigarette butts be disposed of properly. Please keep in mind your are visiting an area currently under a fire ban.
RULES FOR CHILDREN AND AGE RESTRICTIONS
The age requirement for all Seacrest Tours is 10 years of age and older. Our educational opportunities with the Seacrest Wolf Ambassadors wolves are not structured or suitable for younger children. Our tours include detailed information relative to wolf biology and wildlife conservation, and can be lengthy. NO ONE UNDER THE AGE 0F 10 IS PERMITTED ON ANY TOUR OR INSIDE THE WOLF ENCLOSURE AT ANY TIME. However our wonderful Small Animal Adventure, which follows the Wolf Encounter Tour on Saturdays, is open to all ages by reservation.
Children are not allowed to run, wander, or behave loudly while visiting. It is mandatory that all minors visiting Seacrest respect and comply with all our rules and be under strict adult supervision at all times. Any parent or child not respecting our policies will be asked to leave immediately.
In most settings, the presence of a service animal will not result in a fundamental alteration. However, there are some exceptions. At Seacrest Wolf Preserve, service animals are restricted within 500 feet of our wolf enclosures. Wolves are the natural competitors of dogs, and the presence of a dog would be disruptive, causing the wolves to become agitated and possibly behave aggressively toward one another.
Pets and service dogs in training are only allowed for guests staying in our cabin and require a $50 non-refundable pet deposit when you make your reservation. Additionally, pets must be fully vaccinated. ALL GUESTS BRINGING PETS TO THE PRESERVE MUST PRESENT STAFF WITH A UP-TO DATE VACCINATION RECORD FROM THEIR VET.
All deposits made on any of our tours or our Spirit Cabin are non-refundable. However, with 48-hour notice, we can apply your deposit to a future tour date. If you do not show up for your scheduled tour time, your deposit will be considered a donation to the Preserve.
Please deposit trash in designated receptacles. Weapons of any kind are not allowed at Seacrest Wolf Preserve or on Oak Farms property. Alcohol is not permitted. We reserve the right to escort any individuals or groups who do not follow our rules, are acting in ways deemed harmful to our animals, or that prevent the enjoyment of other guests.
