About Alligator Adventure

Get up close and personal with some of the most dangerous and beautiful animals on the planet at Alligator Adventure in North Myrtle Beach. Located adjacent to Barefoot Landing, this 15-acre park features hundreds of species of reptiles as well as other exotic animals, including a variety of birds and mammals.

Alligators are the main attraction at this reptile zoo neighboring Barefoot Landing. Over 700 massive monsters call Alligator Adventure home and entertain guests of all ages. The collection of gators and crocodiles in their natural environment is a sight to see on a sunny day, when hundreds of these apex predators sunbathe on the shore of the natural lake that runs through the park property. Ten-footers, 15-footers, and even a 20-foot croc named Utan roam the grounds and waters as if in the wild.

Enjoy feeding shows as handlers coax these prehistoric beasts out of the water and onto dry land to claim a free chicken dinner. Alligator feedings at this attraction take place every other hour of park operation from mid-April to mid-October. We recommend calling the park ahead of time for that day’s exact schedule. Visitors can also see these fascinating gators in action at the live-handling shows and educational events for guests of all ages.

This wildlife adventure park is famous for its rare collection of all animals, cold- and warm-blooded alike. The impressive Snake House displays deadly venomous snakes from around the world and species native to the Carolinas. Non-reptile exhibits showcase ostriches, spotted hyenas, and Chilean flamingos. The zoo adds new exhibits regularly to keep the visitor experience fresh and exciting.

Alligator Adventure is located on Highway 17 South in North Myrtle Beach next door to the House of Blues. Tickets are $36.99 for adults, $26.99 for children 4-12, and $34.99 for seniors 62 and older. Children ages three and under get in free. Military members can receive 10 percent off admission for up to six guests.
