Create an itinerary including Alligator Alley
Start your guided adventure with a walk to the elevated viewing platform, where you can see over 450 alligators from hatchlings to mature adults, relaxing, sunbathing, courting and nesting. After a breath taking view, continue your adventure with a nature walk on the elevated boardwalk and see alligators in their natural habitat along with other natural inhabitants such as turtles, ospreys, owls and bull frogs only a couple feet away!

Feed them. Hold them.

Our expert staff members are always happy to chat with you and answer anything you ever wanted to know about gators!

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, be sure you’re here during feeding times. Want to feed them yourself? Grab some alligator chow and we’ll let you be the master! But don’t worry, we won’t just throw you to the gators – we’ll be there to give instruction and supervise, of course.

  • I loved this! Watching the feeding time, we learned several things about gators. The walk through the swamp was shaded and breezy thanks to an incoming thunderstorm.. I would have taken more time...

  • Lovebthis place we visit every year.
  • Fun experience for the whole family. Tons of gators! The feeding was entertaining and informative. The kids enjoyed the alligator chow, but the gators were kinda lazy because we went on a cooler spring day. We especially loved the opportunity to hold a young alligator! The swamp walk was beautiful and jam-packed with huge alligators.
