  • You will not believe how many alligators they have. I was biting my fingernails when Wes got inside the fence with the gators at feeding time. This is a kid friendly place that was worth the money. 
  • We had pre-schoolers, seniors and all ages in between. This was a fun yet educational outing. The sancuary is clean and set up with the gators in "age groups" They even had a young one to be held, the...  more »
  • Alligators are in a sort of stasis in winter so no feedings. However, was worth going. My so got to hold a year old gator and we saw some monsters to itty bitty.

  • Took my husband, 2 1/2 year old and 2 grandparents, it was awesome! Huge and small alligators in natural habitat. Buy the alligator food (3 bucks a cup, we bought 2) to throw out to feed the alligators. My 2 1/2 year old loved throwing out the food and watching the alligators come get it. Walk ways nice paved (mostly concrete), with decking for bridges and decks in swamp. Chain linked fencing for safety at all times, no way my toddler could have ran off and got into the swamps. We watched the feeding at 11 am and was educational. My son got to hold a baby alligator. Was supposed to be fun for my 2 year old but We all loved it! Recommend highly!
  • My husband and I came to visit Alligator Alley for our very first time and we are still in awe with this place! The staff is incredible and as friendly as they come! I can't remember the lady's name but the woman that let us hold the young gator is so very passionate about these amazing creatures! (I can remember her favorite gator is pickles😊 but not her name) And the gentleman that fed the gators while we were there was able to answer all of our questions without thinking twice! Its awesome the compassion these people have for these incredible animals! It's educational and fun for any and all ages! Two thumbs up Alligator Alley!
  • We had so much fun at Alligator Alley! Going from the babies to toddlers all the way to the big scary grown-up alligators was fun...then back down the line to the babies again on the way out. Our kids had a blast feeding and even holding an alligator! The grounds are lovely and well-maintained, but in a homey sort of way rather than a commercial way. Staff is super friendly and greeted us and answered lots of questions. We even talked to the owner, who was out and about. My 13-year-old declared Alligator Alley to be the highlight of our Gulf Shores vacation. Thanks for a great time!
  • This place is AMAZING. The enclosures for the animals are nice. They are good sizes aND most the gators roam free. The people are the ones basically in cages. It's like a giant farm almost. Good prices and of you go at the right time you can watch them eat. Highly suggested if your down on vacation.
  • Loved it! Will definitely visit again. We used a Groupon. The alligators were actually in their natural habitat, and we walked through the swamp.
