Founded in 1982 as an airboat ride attraction, Everglades Alligator Farm expanded into commercial alligator farming after state approval in 1985 as a means to preserve the then-endangered American alligator. Everglades Alligator Farm features more than 2,000 gators at different stages of development exhibited in various grow-out pens and breeding ponds. Feedings and wrangling demonstrations take place daily, and the farm still features exciting airboat rides through the grassy wetlands to observe the reptiles in their natural habitat. In addition to gators, the park is also home to caimans, crocodiles and other reptiles. Happily, since the legalization of alligator farming undercut the necessity for poaching, the gator population has risen back to 1.5 million. The park is open 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily, and adult admission is $27 ($19.50 for children), which includes an airboat ride, farm access and shows.
