Alligator Adventure

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by karenkayp on March 14, 2003

Alligator Adventure is one of the largest reptile zoos in the world and is a complete fun-filled day for the whole family! Alligator Adventure is located adjacent to Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach right on Highway 17. The natural 12.5 acre setting of this unique facility is a very attractive place to visit because you are guided along a boardwalk fantasy through beautiful natural swamps and marshes.

Our grandchildren were eight and ten at the time of our visit, and although our granddaughter tried to act like it wasn't anything great, the enthusiasm of her brother definitely "rubbed off!" And it was because they had over 700 alligators and crocodiles, extremely rare exotic snakes, lizards, tropical birds, tortoises, albino alligators, and komodo dragons with live shows and demonstrations to thrill all ages (including us!). The alligators ranged in size from 8-inch newborns to 13-foot adults. When we were there the educational shows were given every hour - the even hours were alligator shows while the odd hours were reserved for snake shows. We listened to lectures and watched as the staff fed these animals. At the time of this writing their website is under construction but it looks like it will be very informative. Check out Alligator Adventure.
