Great activity inside and out! When passing through keep an eye out for hidden areas - in the snake area you can climb up and down into a glass area in the vivariums. In the Alligator bay area - there is a crawl space underneath to get closer, or a tree house ladder to look out over the "bay". Was... More

My 15 year son picked this as one of our day trips during our recent trip to france. There was 7 of us from the age of 5 to 65 and we ALL had a great time! Spent a few hours here wandering around. Loved the reptile area and the way you could get inside the snake tanks withe special... More

Nice place well laid out, reptile house has tunnels/viewing areas which take you inside the exhibit, great addition to just standing looking into a glass case. Some of the large tortoises roam into an enclosure where you can get up close and personal with them. Seeing crocs and gators together you notice the differences in both species. Take a picnic...

Excellent from start to finish! We were not blessed with good weather while on holiday in nearby Domaine des Ormes so Alligator Bay turned out to be a lifesaver one of the days with two very bored kids. Giant tortoises that you can actually walk amongst and pet, massive snakes and other reptiles not to mention the Alligators & crocs... More

I visited with grandchildren of 10 and 15 as it was so close to Mont St Michel. It was not at all disappointing and the children had great fun. The youngest is mad on lizards and so really enjoyed the variety in the location. We did not see any feeding but there was lots to see even though I didn't... More

We saw a giant tortoise hatch and snakes shedding skin. Dozens of gators and crocs too. The animals are well maintained and seemingly friendly. The lizards and turtles really wanted our attention! They also have tubes for the kids to crawl through and be a part of the exhibit. There are many fun aspects of the alligator display as well,... More

We decided to visit Alligator Bay as driving past it looked pretty interesting and excited the kids aged 9 and 11. To be honest once inside I found this place pretty boring! The reptile area was the most interesting as they were being feed but as for the alligators they are only feed on the weekend so if you like... More

Alligator bay is a great place to visit with children or as a couple. The park is well laid out and all the animals were easy to see. Inside the reptile house is great for older children as there are tunnels under the tanks where you come up into a dome in the centre of the exhibit area; face to... More

This was an interesting visit, the staff were very friendly and helpful, although when told of a distressed tortoise that had ended up on its back they didn't seem to concerned but that could have been a language barrier issue. Most of the enclosures were spacious for the species but a lot weren't, But then these could have been quarantined... More

Really superb family visit, amazing number of alligators, reptiles, tortoises/terrapins, all seemingly very happy in a well laid out attraction. A great touch that I hadn't seen before were 'crawl through' viewing chambers taking kids right inside many of the animal habitats. Good value too.
