Gator. Gulf Coast Gator Ranch

Very cool and creepy being that close to an alligator. Worth the small price to get in.

Gator Ranch. Gator Farm

Hours are 9-5 everyday. Admission is $5. You walk on a raised wooden boardwalk through the swamp. They also have displays of live young gators and you get to hold one. They have airboat rides for an extra fee. Very friendly staff.

Gator Farm - Emu Feed

This gator farm exists mostly to raise alligators to sell the meat/skins. But the tour (pretty cheap, a few bucks) gets you up close to gators. We were lucky enough to see them feed a few previously frozen emus (well, we begged them, and they did it for us.) Not for the faint hearted or weak-stoamched. At this visit, the place was run by a couple of Vietnam vets, friendly gator guys. Souvenirs avaailable, such as gator claw necklaces.

[Angela Reynolds, 05/31/2001]

Ray Fagan reminisces: "During Hurricane Georges the farm was flooded for several days. Hundreds of gators got loose in the area. The farm is not on the local residents' Christmas list."
