Welp, add swimming with otters to the list of things I (and you) need to check out in the very near future!

The Barn Hill Preserve in Ethel, Louisiana, allows guests over the age of 16 to meet these cuddly friends, after they sign a waiver, of course! The experience at the animal preserve also includes a tour of the grounds which includes kangaroos and sloths!

The number of otter swims is limited so the experience can still be fun for the little creatures. Take a look at these photos and tell me you don’t want to get in on this action.

1. She looks like she’s having a blast.


2. Some underwater footage.


3. Fun in the sun.


4. The littlest otter of the bunch.


5. Yes, I would like to swim with you!


6. All the way from New York.


7. Chillin’ poolside.

8. Too cool for school…in the pool.

9. Made some new friends.

10. They sure do look snuggly…

Now that is a great time!

OMG… it might be time for a road trip down to Louisiana…just sayin’…
