Freshwater Oasis features wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets. Designed with a rainforest canopy above and sparkling clear springs below, you and your family can relax, explore and find endless discoveries.
Asian Clawed Otters
Freshwater Oasis offer guests a unique opportunity to swim side by side with our playful Asian small-clawed otters, with viewing above and below the water. Be sure to bring your mask and snorkel and be immersed in a dynamic habitat the otters share with colorful fish.
Witness these inquisitive mammals propelling themselves with their webbed hind feet to swim and tumble during their daily scheduled enrichment session times: 11:15 a.m., 12:45 p.m., 1:45 p.m. and 2:45 p.m., weather permitting.
Marmoset Island located in Freshwater Oasis offers an up-close and personal look at our charismatic and curious marmosets. Easily recognized by their puffy white cheeks, these small, playful primates are an arboreal species, spending much of their time in the trees. As you wade the waters of the Freshwater Oasis, be sure to look up for a chance to watch the marmosets exploring the treetops and bamboo bridges of their island playground.
Marmoset Island opens at 9 a.m. The best times to see the marmosets is during scheduled enrichment sessions at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., weather permitting.
Venture beyond the beaches and waterfalls of Discovery Cove and enter a hidden treasure, the Explorer's Aviary, where an inspiring natural habitat sings with the rhythm of wings and the melodies of birdsong.
