Located inside Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, SC, it offers families the opportunity to see tigers up close, through glass, absolutely free of charge. For those interested in meeting a tiger or an ape in person, we offer (for a fee)the opportunity to pose with one of the animal ambassadors for a photo. The animals spend only a couple hours per day, in the late afternoon, at T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station and funding generated from our photos and gift shop sales help support various wildlife conservation projects we conduct worldwide through our Rare Species Fund. We are open from mid-March to mid-October and hours of operation can be found by calling our listed telephone number. « less

I've been to the Barefoot Landing location a few times, but have never taken the tour. $80 for a picture might seem a bit steep, but let's face it--when the heck are you going to ever get the opportunity to take a picture with a baby or adult tiger? Plus, the money goes to a good cause called the Rare... More

We had a great experience here. All my kids loved it....and have great pictures from it. The only draw back is the price, however it does go to a great cause. The only negative part is that it was hard to locate for an out of town tourist.

I purchased the T.I.G.E.R tour for my husband's bday. Both of us are animal lovers. This tour truly exceeded any and all my expectations. We spent 3+ hours interacting with animals like baby tigers, ligers, wolf cubs, chimps and an elephant. The staff/trainers were extremely knowledgeable and were great with the visitors and animals. You could see the love between... More

This is only open at 5 these days. Very hard to wait around because it's in a shopping center that doesn't have a lot of interesting stores. It's also very hard to find.

We went to Tigers this past week while in Myrtle beach and thought it would be a good experience for our 12 year old girls and it was great fun for them and us as well. Seeing and touching the animals so close to us was awesome. The trainers running the tour were also quite entertaining and very educational about... More

We were in Myrtle Beach for one night for a college visit. I decided to take the family to check at TIGERS at Barefoot Landing. It was neat to see the tigers up close, especially the babies.. Four of us got our pictures taken with a monkey and a baby tiger as a group for $80. Typically I think this... More

We visited the one at North Myrtle Beach at Barefoot Landing. They had full grown tigers behind glass enclosures that you get up close for pictures or to just view for free, which was great. Then for an $80.00 fee you can get a picture taken with a monkey and a baby tiger, while holding them, for group of up... More

First off they are all volunteers raising money. It may seem expensive to get your picture taken but it was a life time experience and besides it goes to a good cause. The volunteers were extremely friendly and the animals were just priceless!
