This event was well worth the money that we paid. Not only did we learn all about alligators but we got to hold them. I highly recommend this family friendly place!

We loved the ranch! The information about the farming and release program was interesting and getting to hold the babies was so much fun! Thanks so much Royce and Joe (hope that's right!) Hope we can make it back again in August for a hatching!

If you want to see gators, this is the place to visit! Far more informative and interesting than a swamp tour if you are in it for the gators. Great with kids! Super organized.

Great tour for kids and adults. It's very educational, fun and offers hands-on experience with baby alligator.

We opted to take this tour over a swamp tour due to my fear of snakes and wanting to touch a gator. Our tour guide Royce was hilarious and got the crowd going. The alligators were cool to touch. I wish we could have seen...More

They do have certain small gators that you can hold and take pictures with. They usually are pretty docile, and their mouth are taped shut.
