Everglades Alligator Farm
305-247-2628      Map      top

Our privately owned attraction is a real working alligator farm. Started in 1982 by Mr. John Hudson, the farm originally began as an airboat ride attraction.

In 1985 the State of Florida permitted commercial farming of alligators and Mr. Hudson opened the first such farm in Dade County. In the 60's, the American alligator had almost become extinct and was placed on the endangered species list by the Federal Government. Commercial farming was correctly seen as a way to insure the preservation of this reptile, which traces its existence back to the time of the dinosaurs.

Our farm is located at the edge of the Everglades, however, it is not a part of the Everglades National Park. We have endeavored to keep a rustic atmosphere that is representative of the first settlers to the area, and at the same time live in harmony with the Everglades' pristine environment.

During the shows visitors get a chance to hold baby
alligators or snakes and make pictures.
