Looking for an up close and personal (yet safe) encounter with some of nature’s fiercest animals? Alligator Adventure in North Myrtle Beach is the place to go! Located adjacent to Barefoot Landing, the popular dining, shopping and entertaining complex, this 15-acre park features plenty of adventure for animal lovers to experience.
The Main Attraction
The park has a variety of over 100 alligators and crocodiles spread throughout the site. Imagine this sight on a sunny day when all the prehistoric creatures spread out to sunbathe on the shore of the natural lake that runs throughout the park. These creatures range in size from ten-footers to 15-footers and even a 20-foot croc named Utan!
Variety of Animals
Although Alligator Adventure is known for its alligators and crocs, it’s also famous for its rare collection of other reptiles. The Snake House contains some of the deadliest and most venomous snakes from around the world, with several species native to the Carolinas. Frighteningly long boas and pythons as well as several species of vipers can be found. Alligator Adventure is one of the largest facilities for reptile life of all kinds in the world! Transverse through beautiful natural swamps and marshes as you encounter an amazing array of lizards, giant frogs, turtles and more. Exotic birds with magnificent colors can also be seen throughout the park. A pair of Siamese tigers also roams their exhibits, while lemurs, owls, and even kangaroos can be found!
Enjoy Alligator Adventure’s live feedings mid-April through mid-October as handlers coax these amazing creatures out of the water and onto dry land for a free chicken dinner, allowing visitors to see these incredible creatures in action. If you’re lucky, the in-house veterinarian Dr. Sam Seashole, (aka “The Croc Doc”) will be around to answer your questions or even autograph his documentary video for you!
Alligator Handling and Lecture
In the cooler months most alligators don’t eat, but that doesn’t mean the entertainment comes to an end. Trained lecturers allow you to touch a live alligator, get your picture taken with him, and learn a variety of interesting facts about these incredible creatures!
Let the professional snake staff teach you a thing or two about these misunderstood reptiles. Squash your fear and learn how to tell a venomous snake from a non venomous one. Are they really as slimy as they look? Learn everything you’ve always wanted as you get up close to these incredible creatures!
