  • Arrived with family from KY only to find out we missed the last tour. Disappointed and headed back to the car, a nice gentleman said they could do an abbreviated tour. Royce was our very knowledgeable, very funny handler! Although we went for the kids, the adults enjoyed the experience just as much. Thank you to Royce and the gentleman for going above and beyond! You guys are awesome! We will be back- on time:)
  • We had a great time! Highly encourage this for all ages. Joe truly seems to enjoy what he does.
  • This place is really cool. When you first get there you walk in the front door see the skins or belts and wallets you can buy. They even have gator meat you can buy. They give some speeches that are really informative. Then you get to feed gators some marshmallows. Pet some gators and take a picture with one. Really cool stuff. The guys that work there are cool people. Ross is a cool guy, but be careful of another guy he will photo bomb your phone, lol.
  • Definitely a GREAT way to spend an afternoon. Very hands on, informative and so very interesting! Joe and Gumbo were great! Feeding them marshmallows was very entertaining. Watching my daughter catch them and hold them was great as well. I would definitely go back and I highly recommend this to EVERYONE!!!!!
  • Owner seemed very smug. We drove an hour out to take 30lbs of steak that had thaws for him to feed the gators. I wasn't asking for money but he explained in an irritated manner that he only feeds the gators chow like dog food. I understood but it was the "sorry I couldn't help you" that left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I was trying to help you sir..
