The talk was extremely informative, and very child-friendly. We got to hear about how the alligator population has thrived with their help, as well as some ending up in burgers! We were told how big their brains are, what they eat, and how the eggs are cared for; as well as how the conservation keeps tabs. We got to see... More

Great place to learn about alligators. Kids and adult have an opportunity to have baby gators hatch in August as that is the highlight of the season.

Took the family including my 2 1/2 year old son. The tour guide, Jimmy, really made the tour. He was very funny, entertaining and informative. The tour was very educational and bringing the real purpose of the ranch, conservation, of the American Alligator to light. I definitely recommend getting reservations (military and seniors get a discount) and paying for the... More

Not sure what side of the bed Timmy P got up on but my girlfriend and I loved this place. We like to see different things, especially nature stuff. My GF was excited to touch an alligator for the first time. Everyone (including the owners!) clearly knew their stuff and were very accommodating. The alligators are well cared for, and... More

This place was great all the way around. I've stopped at a few different gator farms across the south with my kids. This gator ranch tops them all. The guy who gave the tour was awesome. Even when my 3 year old kept trying to take the stage. Their prices are very fare compared to some others, but way more... More
