Everglades Alligator Farm, Homestead

3.9
#1 of 15 in Things to do in Homestead
Home to more than 2,000 individual alligators, Everglades Alligator Farm gives visitors the opportunity to see the creatures in their natural habitat and view the working processes of the farm itself. The facility operates as a provider for other institutions, hatching and raising alligators in an ethical way and providing viable eggs to other farms. Wander the park's trails and paths to get a glimpse of the alligator-raising process in action, or sit in on one of the wildlife shows that include snakes and other Florida animals. If you're lucky, you'll even get to watch a live alligator feeding. One of the mainstays of any visit and quintessential Florida activity is hopping on an airboat and zipping through the lush, watery landscape of the Everglades.

    Great value for money. €27 for adults and €25 for children. This includes a 20-25 minute airboat ride which is well worth doing. It is lots of fun. We saw alligators and enjoyed the 360 turns. You wil...  more »

    Did the air-boat ride and it was a lot of fun. Prepare to get some Everglades water on you! Saw a bunch of alligators, some cayman and a few birds. Trip was 15 - 20 minutes so you don't go too far but its worth it. They also have an alligator "farm" with baby gators, adults, owls, emu, turtles, snakes, etc.

    Fantastic day spent at Alligator Farms. Their airboat ride on River of Grass is an unparalleled experience. We as family were given an opportunity to handle pythons as well as baby alligators. This was an amazing adventure experience. You need to experience it yourself to believe it.
