First, this attraction was way over priced! Adult rates are in excess of $20. We were through, including shows, in just over 2 hours. The show depicting wild animals of Florida included a whopping 3: owl, snake, & rabbit! I was not impressed with this attraction at all. Gatorland in Kissimmee is a much better deal!!

Just returned from a trip (4-08), if you love birds, this is a great time to go. You'll see egrets, herrons and wood storks nesting along a boardwalk over the alligator lagoon. Very nice park with plenty to see. They have a good selection of crocodiles from around the world. If you have children, Gatorland in Orlando is more kid friendly with Gator jumping and wrestling, but The Alligator Farm has plenty to offer (including lots of shade). And it's right across the road from a state park with a beautiful beach. If you are a nature lover, it is well worth the visit.

The St. Augustine Alligator Farm is St. Augustine's best kept secret. There are wildlife shows every hour. Each one covering a subject for someone in your group, from alligator feedings, to colorful rainforest birds and mammals. The rookery is absolutely amazing in the spring. Wading birds from the surrounding area nest in the trees above the alligators. The staff says they choose this area because the birds know their eggs are safe from raccoons and opossums, etc. There are hundreds of alligators and they say they have every species of crocodile in the world. The place is a little different each time we visit. This visit they had a new exhibit with large African birds, vultures, cranes, storks, etc. The vulture feeding may not be for everyone, but we found it fascinating. We talked to a keeper who said that the vultures were rehab birds from a place in South Africa and that they intend to breed these endangered birds for release back into the wild. It is great to see this kind of conservation going on in a local (small) zoo. While we were there we noticed the new construction with signs that say a Komodo dragon will be on display this year. One of the reptile keepers said that the new building will also have a king cobra, a 21 foot python!, and a few more reptiles. They also have photos up of a big bird called a cassowary that looks like some sort of dinosaur. We purchased a family pass and we can't wait to go back and see the new critters.

Growning up in the area when I was young there where alot of "so called Alligator farms " terrible places where the animlals where not taken care of I am glad that these places have went by the way side almost every little gas station Stuckeys had animals . The Alligator farm takes care of the animals ( from what I can see) I have been several times I love it good place for a picnic we go almost every other time we go to St Augustine it is a litlle costly for what it is so take your time and get your monies worth

Went to the Alligator farm this past week and was a little disappointed. I think we expected something bigger as this park is quite small. It is landscaped pretty but I think they would do well to move 1/2 the alligators somewhere else. Seemed like an awful lot of them crammed into the lagoon and feeding area. Was hoping to see a lot of tropical birds but there are only a handful. The shows are brief and informative but very hard to hear depending on the host. Would probably be best enjoyed by families with very young children who don't have a bigger zoo in their hometown..
