We went here with 3 teens, my spouse, and my aunt (she's 75), and we all loved it! Perfect for all ages, would totally recommend.

We come down to West Palm every year to visit my mom. We read so many great things about McCarthy’s so we decided to go see what everyone was raving about. We were not disappointed! Kara was our guide and she was very knowledgable. She had a genuine love for the animals and knew all of their stories. There were birds, big cats, tortoises, lemurs snakes and our favorite, a kinkachu, who we got to hold ( so cute-he clings on to you like a baby!!!). We highly recommend McCarthy’s!!!

Highly recommend this facility for anyone who enjoys learning and visiting animals. We had a wonderful tour and found it fascinating. The hands-on activities were especially enjoyed by the children. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The story of how they obtained each animal was very interesting.

My husband, daughter, granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to McCarthy's Wildlife Sanctuary. Our tour guide, Kara, was so enthusiastic and so professional and well informed. We were able to enjoy the beautiful birds, big cats, and other animals safely, yet up close and personal. I was able to take pictures of the granddaughter holding a huge snake. She loved it--I was happy to take pictures... I would recommend this outing to everyone at all ages! Thank you McCarthy's!
