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.

Of course, alligators are the main attraction and Alligator Adventure has hundreds on site. Enjoy feeding shows as handlers coax these prehistoric beasts out of the water and onto dry land to claim a free chicken dinner. Alligator Adventure also holds live gator-handling shows so visitors can see these fascinating gators in action. This 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.

Alligator Adventure is famous for its rare collection of other reptiles, including the Snake House that displays deadly venomous snakes from around the world and species that are native to the Carolinas. Non-reptile exhibits include Chilean flamingos, squirrel monkeys, and spotted hyenas. New exhibits are added regularly. In 2021, visitors can see mountain lions, Galapagos tortoises, and a newly hatched alligator exhibit in the frog and lizard house. 

Alligator Adventure is located at on Highway 17 South in North Myrtle Beach next door to the House of Blues. Tickets range from $19.99 for kids to $29.99 for adults and the park is open seven days a week. Children 3 and under are free. Military members can receive 10% off for up to 6 guests.
