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.

  • Lots and Lots of gators, about 30 min away from Gulf Shores. First week of October, cooler nights so a lot of larger gators were not moving around much. The 11:00 feeding was pretty laid back. Maybe.....  more

  • Highly recommend! Came here with our two kids. Had a lot of fun. Make sure you go and watch them feed the alligators! We bought alligator food and fed the alligators. It was a lot of fun.

  • This place is so cool. The feeding show is great and the the owner was super knowledgeable and fun to talk with. He was like an American, southern back-roads Crocodile Hunter, he's the Alligator Rescuers!! The kids loved holding the baby alligator and albino python and feeding the big ones. I mean your right over some really big ancient beast, it is really awesome.
  • This place was a very pleasant surprise. The property was well manicured and a nice walk. Everyone one working there was very friendly and made the experience great. The place is surrounded be farm land but once your there your teleported to swamp in the middle of no where. If possible catch one of the feedings, sure you get to see the creatures eat but the guy doing to feeding had a lot of really interesting information about the gators 🐊 that I had never heard. The swamp was really cool to stroll through, the wife has some arachnophobia but the banana spiders couldn’t scare her away from enjoying the swamp. Met an employee that was working in the swamp answering visitors questions about the gators, extremely knowledgeable man. Really good experience, I’ll bring family and friends when they come to town, great place
  • Be sure to bring a sweat towel, a portable fan, or anything you might need to keep yourself cool! This was a very enjoyable experience, and seeing the alligators being fed was a first for me (I loved it immensely). Joseph fed them while we were there, and he did great. I definitely recommend this place to anyone in the area!
  • The best laid out Gator Park we have seen. Natural habitat with boardwalk that lets you see some big gators that aren't caged. Simple facility, but we loved it. Highly recommend.
  • My family favorite activity of our whole trip. We don’t see gators in Utah and this place was everything we wanted and more. Worth every penny and min spent at this place. Thanks for an amazing experience.
