Whether you’re afraid of, grossed out by, or fascinated by alligators, Alligator Alley in Summerdale, AL will amaze you. The alligator sanctuary works to safely remove gators from properties deemed to be dangerous, both for humans and gators alike. As a result, these gators get a cozy swamp removed from civilization enough for them to stretch out and sunbathe at will. It also gives humans a safe opportunity to become educated about them as well as view them from a safe distance. You’ll love getting the chance to see these gators up close and personal!

Seize Your Chance to See the Gators at Alligator Alley in Summerdale, AL

Alligator Alley in Summerdale, AL, got its start in 2004 and was founded by Wes Moore. Since then, it has taken in over 450 alligators ranging from babies to over 13 feet in length! Alligators in the wild oftentimes get a bad rap because humans overlap their natural habitat. That’s what Alligator Alley works to amend. By creating a sanctuary for these gators, Alligator Alley has made a safe place for gators, an educational experience for humans, and an adventure for visitors!

As a part of the experience, you’ll be able to see gators sunbathing from an elevated boardwalk. Take a guided tour of the farm and meet baby alligators! With the help of the expert staff, you’ll even be able to hold one and take a picture! And, if you are in for a real adventure, be sure to arrive by feeding times, 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 4 p.m., daily. You can even feed them yourself with supervision. How’s that for a vacation story?
