We loved the Alligator Farm! It was a great thing to do with our son (11 y.o.) We all loved it. Don't miss the alligator feedings and the rookery. We spent several hours there on an overcast day (some sprinkles) and really enjoyed it. I wish we had made reservations for my son and husband to do the ziplining. Based... More

This place was quite a surprise. The facility was clean, well laid out and pretty. There were lots of alligators to see And they were well kept and in a natural, park like setting. Don't miss this one - even if you don't have any kids!!!

Certainly not a first-class zoo, but nonetheless a fun experience. My 12-year-old really enjoyed getting to see the alligators get fed. (What 12-year-old wouldn't?) It also convinced this New England boy that we weren't kidding when we told him not to go into the swamp or hang out by the waters edge in Florida. Fun activity for kids if you... More

We really enjoyed our time at the alligator farm. What a little gem at the beach. It was so great to be able to be so close to the alligators. The albino one's right at the front were a sight to be seen. I kept thinking this is something I would never had been able to see and certainly not... More

I hate to admit this but it was acually fun. And I normally hate this kind of tourist crap. Especially the birds. Really neat birds. I know, it's supposed to be about alligators. And they have alligators. Boy, do they. But man, I'll bet in the hot muggy summer this place could really reek. But I liked the little birdies.

A fun weekend getaway with my hubby to St. Augustine Florida led us unexpectedly to the Alligator Farm. As spontaneous beings, always on the lookout for fresh adventures, we found one and our inner kids came out to play big time. This place offers lot of scary faces and teeth, along with other lovely creatures and a bird rookery. Thoughtfully... More

The park was nice with enough to see to keep the littles interested. The shows were very interesting and we liked watching the alligators get fed. The only downside is that I thought it was pretty pricey for the size of the place. Also, the real cool attraction is for ages 10 and up.

My family loved visiting this zoo. They have what appears to be thousands of gators and crocks. And unlike other alligator farms around Florida that will remain nameless, these gators are clean, fat, And happy. There were no scars or sores on any of them. No fighting for food. And there is no odor. They keep the animals super clean.... More

We spent the afternoon at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm and we couldn't be happier with the amount of wildlife we saw. It's great to know that efforts are being made to protect the different species of birds and all of the alligators. The concessions stands were overpriced and limited so we didn't purchase anything there. Overall I'd recommend it... More

As states by other reviewers, this attraction is far superior to most of its type. We enjoyed seeing so many alligators and crocs, but that's not all. The most amazing experience for us was seeing the hundreds of birds nesting and feeding their young. This occurs between April and July and it nothing short of breath taking. You could never... More
