Giant tortoises, snakes and lizards and a large variety of alligators and crocodiles make this an interesting way to spend a couple of hours especially as it is so close to the attraction of Mont St Michel. Discount vouchers available if you frequent MacDonalds on the back of receipts. There is a gift shop but refreshments a little lacking.

We stopped here as have many others after visiting Mont St Michel to give our 9 year old a bit of the day for her to enjoy! She did enjoy it as did we but just thought it was a bit expensive for the amount of time you spend there ( I think it was about 34 euros for 2... More

By chance on the way to my most favourite place in the world Mont St Michel we stopped off here. Very warm but interesting and plenty of reptiles on view. Scary putting my head up a glass case surrounded with snakes.

They have a LOT of Alligators. What more can I say? It provides all that it promises and nothing more. Stopped here on a total whim having been to Mont St Michele (like I imagine most people do), pretty pleased with this find and certainly kept me entertained for the best part of several hours. A considerable number of tortoises... More

We took six children from 7-17 to visit this and had no idea what to expect. We had spent nearly three hours watching various, terrapins, turtles and snakes. Some of the inside enclosures have been designed so that children can climb in and be close to the snakes/alligators. We felt very priviledged as we saw a tortoise hatch out in... More

Read the 'terrible' reviews with caution. They detail the vile service of 'the boss' of this hellhole. After you have been ripped off, you will be treated to enclosure after enclosure of tortoises in cramped and dirty conditions. You'll pass through to a reptile section, where you will see distressed animals in inappropriate enclosures. As you finally make your way... More

This is the second time we have visited in 5 years and were pleasantly surprised by the various new additions which make the visit more interactive.The gentleman who we purchased our entry tickets from was about as miserable and sullen as you could imagine and NOT a good advertisement for the attraction but that aside we thoroughly enjoyed our visit....

Good value for a family, lots to see and very interesting given the types of animal on view. Certainly a decent 2 to 3 hour trip. Our daughter aged 8 and son aged 6 had an enjoyable afternoon especially the interactive tunnels enabling them to get close up to various reptiles and the crocodile feeding session!

My wife and my two children who are 18 and 15 went to Alligator Bay as a last resort as we had nothing else to do whilst it was raining! We ended up having a fab time. Great choice of animals that kept us interested the whole time. They even have 2 white alligators of which there are only 40... More
