“Aligators”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We enjoyed the activities at the alligator farm. It was very educational and we advise you take the air boat ride into the everglades.

“Disrespectful to the animals”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The farm is a farm in true meaning of the word. They have hundreds of animals in only a few square meters of enclosures. They take you an airboat ride that is quite fun and you get to see a bit of the Everglades and even alligators in their natural environment. But the farm part I didn't like at all. If you've never seen an alligator or a snake up close and really want to, go take a look. But if you are hoping to find respectful attitude towards the animals look somewhere else. The "show" they put on was horrible, a guy just dragged the poor gator around by its tail. Any zoo trip is nicer and more educational.

“An OK attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

If your looking for an airboat ride to see the everglades you might want to look somwhere else. You do get a 15 or 20 minute ride on an airboat, most of the time at idle speed, and you do get to see a couple of alligators but that is about it. They have a couple of short shows with snakes and alligators, and also a small lake with a lot of alligators. It's probably a good place to take kids.

“There's a reason tourists go here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Some people make fun of "touristy" things to do but if tourists like them, then maybe it's a great way to spend a morning or afternoon. Going to an alligator farm in Florida is definitely a touristy thing to do, and I loved it! The airboat ride was a lot of fun and we saw a alligators in the wild which I didn't expect to see. We saw a snake show (my wife held a live snake--not me!), and an alligator show where I got to hold a baby allitgator. We then saw an alligator feeding. There must have been fifty alligators waiting patiently, all lined up for a chance at a dead rat being thrown their way. Throughout all the shows the guide gave us helpful information about the animals and their habitat. Go to their website and print a coupon for a $2.00 discount on your tickets. A really great touristy thing to do. So if you're a tourist--do it.

“Enjoyed our visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I had a fun time at the Alligator Farm. The employees were quite knowledgable and we saw tons of alligators. The shows were good. The airboat ride was alot of fun. We purchased alligator bites at the concession stand. It was all very clean and well kept. Would recommend a visit there!
