Do you want to take your group on one of the most thrilling adventures in Myrtle Beach? Then take them to Alligator Adventure, the swamp and gator-filled animal park located within Barefoot Landing. Known as the ‘reptile capital of the world’, Alligator Adventure is one of the absolute largest facilities for reptile life in the world. Alligators are known to be some of the fiercest and most beautiful animals in the reptile kingdom, and this is truly the perfect place to see them in action!
Interact, explore, and learn while strolling around, the 15-acre park offering several different live shows, lectures, and animal handlings. You will see everything from Albino and American Alligators to Utan (the largest) and Yacare Crocs, not to mention the wide collection of other various animals, with over 200 species total. View and learn about turtles, tortoises, squirrel monkeys, hyenas, snakes, cranes, lemurs, marmosets, macaws, lizards, frogs, and kookaburras all along the way.
Live shows are offered mid-April through mid-October, during the gators prime eating season. See 15-foot alligators jump from the water and eat during these shows, or perhaps attend a snake handling or educational lecture during the off months. There is definitely a good reason why this spot earned TripAdvisor’s 2015 #1 Attraction vote!
