From tiny hatchlings to imposing adults, there are alligators in almost every pond on Kiawah. Travel with us as we search our naturalists’ favorite gator hangouts for these impressive predators. This is a fantastic way to observe and learn about these amazing and often misunderstood animals in their natural habitat.
Recommended for ages 6+. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Our van tours are a great way to get out and about on the island with a Naturalist. The van will take us to various locations, where we’ll disembark and explore each area.
$40/person, Reservations are required, call 843.768.6001. A 24-hour cancellation policy policy applies. Schedule subject to change.
“Alligators are fascinating creatures and should by all means be enjoyed as part of the natural beauty of our region. But please remember that they are wild animals and should be respected as such. Once they become too familiar with people, they lose their fear of humans, necessitating their removal from the area for the safety of everyone concerned. A few precautions on our part can help both humans and alligators co-exist safely.”
–Dr. J. Whitfield Gibbons
