We go every time we are in Fort Myers. Kids love to feed alligators. Great time for young and old. When its cold the gators don't like to eat though.

We have played mini golf there many times. It is best early morning or later in the day; otherwise it can get extremely hot. They even have live alligators to view and feed.

We mini golf all over the U.S. and it is rare for us to give a 5 star. This is well kept up, has sufficient challenge, has some unique features, and too has alligators folks can feed. It really is a great place for golf!

The mini golf was fun and the staff was great, but the alligators bothered me. There were over a dozen in a small pond. They all crowded on a platform. One was missing its hind leg and the wound was still pink and fresh. It reminded me of a low quality zoo. If they reduced the number of alligators and improved the enclosure I would visit again. Otherwise we're going somewhere else. I'm still bothered by what I saw two weeks later. It's not something you'd want to teach kids it's acceptable to do to animals.

We appreciate our customers concerns for our alligators as we are also very conscientious of their health. Alligators are reptiles which means they are cold blooded. At Smuggler Cove as well as in the wild, when its cold, alligators look for locations to get out of the water and sun themselves. They typically lie very flat and still so as to absorb as much sun as possible while maintaining a very slow metabolism so that they survive the cold. As our guests can see, our alligators look quite healthy. As in the wild, alligators are sometimes territorial and don't always get along. Unlike the wild, we do separate the fighters and relocate them to other equally high quality venues.

Really nice layout, challenging but fun, great for the young ones visiting. Very clean, ample parking. We had some great family challenges and enjoyed it very much.They have baby alligators which you can feed and the second round is cheaper, easy access off San Carlos and Pine Ridge Road. A great place to spend some fun time.
