After more than 40 years, I was in a great part visiting St Augustine, to go to the Alligator Farm. The Farm, located on Anastasia Island, has added zip line tours. Caught the Alligators in mating season and got to hear the bellowing the males make. The rookery is filled with some beautiful exotic birds. Komodo Dragons and Crocodiles are... More

Very impressive, clean, interesting place to visit. Well planed and easy to move around even when it is very busy (which it was). The nesting season brought out all your bird lovers with cameras.

My husband used to work here, and so we decided to visit with the kids so they could see where daddy used to work as a young man. The kids found the creatures interesting, but more 'animal shows' would have been good. Seeing 20 different types of alligators cooped up in individual enclosures can become a bit repetitive after a... More

I promised my 8 yr old I would take him here. The whole family had an amazing time, even my 16 yr old daughter. The grounds are just awesome. Watching the alligator feedings, the shows where you can pet a snake or other animals was great, can't remember the young girls name that put on the show but she was... More

I had lived in FL for over a year and still hadn't seen an alligator so my husband took me here. We enjoyed it and were able to get a bit of a discount on the tickets by booking through old town trolley tours. It is pricey though. Now gators are old news to me.

We go for the bird rookery, but enjoy the rest of the animals also. Especially nice to see all the spoonbills nesting, something we didn't get to see at Gatorland. We went to both and love them both. It's very interesting to see how much further along the breeding in Orlando. The farm (park) is always clean and the staff... More

I believe that the prices to get into this establishment is outrageous, it is cheaper to get into the Jax Zoo. My kids love this place but the prices keep us out! I do love everything in this place, and every one is nice and friendly. It is a great educational trip.

Pleasantly surprised. My memories from "way back" were the corny alligator farms with the wrestling, stupid junk for sale, etc. This place was very interesting, clean and was great for both us seniors and 2 young grandkids. The talks and shows brought a much greater understanding of these amazing animals. Only suggestion is that the sound system for the talks... More
