St Augustine Alligator Farm - Review

Maximo hatched from an egg collected by aborigines along the river bank and grew to his adult size in Australia. Now he shares his home with uncommon magical creatures called the Albino Alligators. According to legend, you gaze upon these beautiful reptiles from the Louisiana bayou and good luck and fortune will shower upon you. Both these creatures can be spotted at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm.

The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park is one of Florida's oldest continuously running attractions, having opened on May 20, 1893. It has 23 species of crocodilians, a variety of other reptiles, mammals, and birds, as well as exhibits, animal performances and educational demonstrations. The park began in 1893 on St. Augustine Beach as a minor attraction at the end of a railway running through Anastasia Island. The alligator were added as a tourist attraction and soon the reptiles themselves became the main point of interest.

In 1993, for their 100 year anniversary, the park became the first place in the world to display every species of crocodilian. This is the only place where you can see every species of alligator, crocodile, caiman, and garial. The zoo also includes exotic birds, monkeys, and other reptiles. The bird collection includes hornbills, cassowary, marabou, Cape Griffon Vultures, and Pesquet's Parrots. In 2008 the zoo opened a new Komodo dragon facility that also exhibits lizards and snakes found within the range of the saltwater crocodile. The back section of the park contains a large bird rookery, where free-roaming local birds species such as egrets, herons, wood storks and roseate spoonbills nest and rear their young.

Gomek originated from New Guinea. It was a massive 18 feet long crocodile and the largest to have lived in this zoo. He is now preserved and surrounded by exhibits, rare and beautifully handcrafted art from Papua New Guinea. There are a large number of exhibits on the farm and a different educational program at the top of every hour.  There is a feeding demonstration every day at 12 noon & 3 p.m. You can even buy food to feed the smaller alligators. During one of the shows you have the opportunity to pet an alligator as well.

The Alligator Farm strives to inspire appreciation and understanding of crocodilians and all other wildlife in the souls of all the guests. Crocodile Crossing is the Alligator Farm’s zip-line, a new attraction opened in 2011. People zip over the entire park, literally seeing live crocodilians, lemurs and tropical birds from a new outlook.

St Augustine Alligator Farm, St Augustine Reviews

  • My 11 year old stepson and I visited and we both had a wonderful time. The park is very well organized with lots of information about each animal that you come into contact with. The park was very clean and well cared for, and the animals appeared the same. The staff were all friendly and willing to answer questions. I would advise that if you can manage it, get there shortly after opening. I feel like the animals were much more active, and of course it was cooler and far less crowded. We walked the entire park and had a snack before the big school groups and large crowds showed up. **Tip** Grab a snack and drink early and go over to the stools around the edge of the seating area so you can enjoy a snack while being within 10 feet of Galapagos tortoises. They are generally fun to watch and that's not something most people get to do.

  • Perfect place to experience an outdoor adventure! We had a family birthday outing, our granddaughter turned 9 and just made the height requirement for doing the zip line. We did the longer more strenuous Nile course and had a blast! This time of the year it’s good advice to go early, it was hot! But we navigated mazes, obstacle courses, and zip lined our way over the zoo and enjoyed great overhead views of all the birds and animals. Fun snack bar, a stop at the gift shop, and the day was complete!

  • Loved the albino alligators. It's not a real big park but a decent size to spend a few hours and check out the gators. I'd recommend going to see the gator feeding. The feeding itself is uneventful but it's cool to see so many gators in one area. There's also a tiny small play area for kids but my kid still loved it.

  • It took me 50 years to finally visit an attraction 30 miles from my home. The wait was worth it. The zoological Park is terrific. Well run, clean and truly educational, all Flroridians can truly learn about the animals and birds they share this state with. This is a photographer's paradise. The rookery is truly amazing. If you live in Northeast Florida and haven't been, don't wait. Go and see one of natural treasures soon.

  • First time here and my husband and I loved it! I highly recommend going as soon as they open or around closing if you don't want to be around too many people. More people showed up around 11ish. We stayed for about an hour, but if you have kids be prepared for staying for an hour and a half to 2 hours. The prices for the drinks were very reasonable and if you get a souvenir cup you get free refills for the life of the cup! Which means if you go again next year, you can use it again (from what I understood). Definitely worth it! The entrance fee is a little high, but I can understand why. Gotta have the money to feed the animals! We took a picture with an baby alligator. Definitely recommend doing that! You can choose between the gator or snake, but I recommend the gator. They keep the gators mouth closed so you don't have to worry about getting hurt. You can also feed the gators throughout the park! Make sure your camera is fully charged, bring extra batteries, and bring a handful of quarters!
