We went to the alligator park not knowing what to expect, and were blown away by how friendly and knowledgable the staff were! Trey, Meghan, TJ, and Chris were amazing and answered all of our questions, and Trey even took us through a tour of...More

It's a cool place, lots of "flare" we everywhere. Every corner has something to look at. The alligator feeding is really... Lame. You're putting some sort of pellet on a fishing pole. For one, whatever this food is, they're offered it all day, everyday so...More

First time in Florida in 40 years. Never heard of this place before. We walked up the steps to be surprised by the 100+ alligators as greeters. I wonder if the newly hired first task is to feed 'em. Nice initiation to the job. Our...More

We enjoyed dinner out with friends and family. Food and customer service was excellent. Lisa waited on us and the manager stoped by and checked in on us. The gift shop was an added bonus!!

Response from Fudpuckers | Property representative |
Yes, there is a $10 charge to hold the alligators and get a souvenir photo taken with them. You can enter Gator Beach and see our exhibit for free - Holding an alligator and feeding the alligators are the only charges.

Go mid-week after lunch, but before dinner to avoid the long wait. Kids will enjoy the gator viewing. Be sure to take Sharpie markers to add your own graffiti (it's allowed and encouraged).

Locally owned and operated since 1982, Fudpucker's has become famous for its great food, world famous t-shirts and fun atmosphere that appeals to young and old alike. The name "Fudpucker's" comes from a nick-name that local deckhands used when referring to the Triggerfish. Of course, even people who have never been to Fudpucker's have probably seen the name on one of the "World Famous" Fudpucker T-shirts. From the very beginning, the name has attracted a lot of attention, and although it has now just about become a household word, it can still inspire a smile or a laugh. Fudpucker's is committed to making your visit a good one so that you'll want to tell your friends about it and you'll want to come back again and again. So relax, enjoy yourself and have a good time. That's what it's all about!
