Sometimes, nature hands us the unexpected. See a great example of that when you visit Alligator Alley. This guided adventure allows you to get a more detailed glimpse of alligators as they relax, play, sunbathe and eat.

Also, there is a special elevated walkway that makes it possible for you to safely peer down at the gators from a most unique perspective as they lounge in their natural habitat.
