Great interactive tour
Jul 2021
My husband, kids and I loved this tour. We learned so much and had a great time petting a snake, feeding tortoises, and holding a baby croc. Destiny was our tour guide and was full of knowledge and was an awesome tour guide. My only complaint was the mosquitos, if I would have known they were that bad I would have put bug spray on before the tour. I would have it handy, especially if it has recently rained.

Great tour to meet baby crocodile, snake and turtles
Jun 2021 • Family
While visiting Tampa I came across croc encounter on the internet. Reading a mix review I did not have my hopes up but decided to give this place a try. I called and scheduled a tour for the following day which was Sunday (father’s day). Our tour started on time and it was very informative. Our tour guide, Destiny, was very knowledgeable and was great throughout. My kids ages 4, 6, 8 and 10 enjoyed it and could not stop talking about the tour. Park is small and tour took about 1 hour and 30 minutes. For younger kids that’s enough to keep them occupied. During the tour everyone got a chance to hold a baby alligator, big snake, feed alligators and big turtles. Kids enjoyed it since it was hands on experience. I definitely recommend this place which the whole family will enjoy. I also thought the price was very reasonable. We will definitely be back next year.

Cool experience in Tampa Florida. Great Interaction
Jun 2021
This was a GREAT TIME. I'm a newer resident to tampa and I've seen this pop up many times to try out and I'm glad I did it has the classic "old florida" feel to it. The guy doing the tour was great too. I LOVED the tortoise feeding pen it was so cool to be surrounded by the hungry reptiles. The only reason why I docked a point off the rating is the price is pretty steep for an experience that barely lasted an hour. There's alot to do in florida so I believe they should be a little more competitive. Check out my full tour on youtube just search Mrbucketlist Croc Encounters

No Saturday Self Tour
May 2021 • Family
Extremely disappointing. If you are are hoping to get in on the lower self tour Saturday rate they advertise it doesn’t exist. We were told we could pay $100 for 3 of us to get a guided tour but they will not allow people to walk through as self tour due to COVID. It did not make much sense since they can monitor flow and number of people just as easy as with a guided tour. It’s out doors and no one in the tours was wearing a mask but us anyway. They need to take it off their site. It’s unfair to advertise something they are not offering and will not honor.

Great experience... do it!
Apr 2021
What a fun and informative tour! We had a great time feeding the gators, tortoises, and turtles. Plus we even got to hold a baby gator! The tour guide was funny, friendly, and very informative. He was easy to hear and understand, even with a mask on. Don't miss this if you're in the area. Croc Encounters is doing a lot of good taking on nuisance reptiles from all over the area.

Spring break adventure
Mar 2021 • Family
We visited the sanctuary during spring break with a mix of adults and children. Clay our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He was willing to answer any questions and was very nice. There were a good variety of reptiles and we were able to hold a snake and a baby gator. We also fed the tortoises, gators and turtles. Inwould definitely go back again.
