Visit Gator Chateau

Finish your tour with a visit to our Gator Chateau, When your group arrives at the Gator Chateau,  one of our alligator handlers will give a lesson on the gators- everything from their habitat, what they eat, how they grow, to how we care for them at our rescue facility.

After the lesson, we will split your group up into smaller groups. Forming a circle around one of our handlers, the students are allowed to hold one of our baby gators and take a pic with them.
