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!

I was sceptical because this tour was so much cheaper than others in the area. I was pleasantly surprised. Our group age 8, 11, 16, 33, 36 and everyone loved it! Definitely opt to pay the extra $5 to catch and hold the baby gators....More

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.

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

I've been visiting Louisiana and going alligator sight-seeing for years. This was a very different spin on it, but pleasantly surprised. There's not much to it, but what they have is really educational and interesting. I loved the 'up, close and personal' engagement with the...More

Went here with our friends and the four children. Our tour operator was very knowledgeable and engaging. I learned more about alligators than I ever imagined I would. Got to handle a small alligator. Their commitment to conservation is admirable.

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.
