Join us for Afternoon with the Apes Monthly Educational Tours!

While the Center for Great Apes is not open to the public, we do offer tours under special circumstances and for educational purposes. Therefore, we are sure you will understand that all tours are subject to certain parameters.

The tour will run from 12:30-2:30 PM. Please arrive between 12:15-12:30 PM. Anyone who arrives after 12:45 PM will not be able to join this month’s tour and will have to reschedule. The donation cost is $25 per person. All visitors will be required to register prior to the tour date and sign our Visitor Consent and Release form the day of the tour. Registration is limited to the first 25 people. Participants must be at least 12 years old.

The tour will be a walking tour of about ¼ mile on shell-rock paths with limited sitting spaces. Be prepared to be in the Florida elements including sun, rain, bugs and other critters. Please wear comfortable clothes, hats, and walking shoes and bring your own bottled water. Please note that your scheduled visit may be canceled, rescheduled or interrupted at any time due to an emergency, staff availability, weather, routine care of the apes or other reasons deemed necessary.
