    I like that the alligators here are rescued animals. When I first saw the sign for alligator attractions I was interested in seeing something different. There were no full-size alligators, I'm not sur...  more »

    It was an enjoyable short activity. I just went for about 45 minutes, but there was a lot of different kinds of animals there to interact with. Holding the alligator was a little expensive but it was ...  more »

    Such a good time! The owner Travis is the former mayor of Madeira Beach and really spent time with our family, showing our kids the alligators and animals. He really taught us all about the alligators, their habitat and the kids loved it! They loved getting to feed them! Most of the alligators he has are rescues and it shows how much he cares for them and sharing them with the kids (and adults)! Super cool place to swing in with the family, enjoy some close up time and a once-in-a-lifetime experience with some gators!

    What a great place to take the kids, or just go to if you are an adult! This place was one of the best things we did while we were in Florida. The staff is so nice and friendly, and the animals are amazing. Our kids had so much fun holding the alligator and feeding them as well. It really is a great place to go!

    This was a "fun on a rainy day" place (or even to get out of the sun). The owner is super nice and I learned some new things about gators. They have farm raised gators - so they're not snatching them out of the wild. Enclosures seemed very clean and they weren't overpacked.

    Lots of fun for the whole family. The kids loved feeding the baby gators and holding the bigger one. Be sure to scratch the turtle's shell... He likes it!

    Only $30 for 2 people to get in, hold, and feed little alligators. Boyfriend is a huge reptile nerd and he loved it. Staff was super friendly and gave us coupons for dinner and ice cream too!
