Alligator Adventure

Call To Make Your Reservation: (843) 768-6001

The American Alligator is the largest reptile in North America. Travel with us as we search for Kiawah’s biggest gators and learn about these impressive predators. This is a fantastic way to observe and learn about these amazing, and often misunderstood animals in their natural habitat.

“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
