Get up Close to the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue
Everglades Holiday Park is proud to be home to the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue, a safe haven for many of the captured nuisance alligators featured on Animal Planet's hit show. Paul Bedard, Chris Gillette and Ashley Lawrence better known as the Gator Boys, are experienced gator trappers who hand capture alligators that find themselves invading back yards, swimming pools, garages and bedrooms of Florida Everglades residents. Many of the show's episodes are filmed right here at Everglades Holiday Park and guests enjoy saying hello and meeting the stars in person.
Live Alligator Presentation in the World Famous Gator Pit
All airboat tours at Everglades Holiday Park include an exciting alligator presentation in our world famous Gator Pit. The 15-20 minute live show is an up close and personal glimpse into the behaviors and mannerisms of the American alligator as demonstrated by one of the Gator Boys. While we never know from one day to the next who will be on site to perform, guests are never disappointed when they get the chance to pose for pictures with Paul, Chris, Ashley or Caroline.
The Gator Boys Alligator Rescue is reflective of the park's commitment to educate the public on the importance of ongoing conservation and preservation efforts in the Everglades. We are proud to be a part of the rescue effort and will continue to place a premium on the work the Gator Boys do to save as many alligators as possible. By giving visitors to the park the chance to see the Gator Boys perform, we are hoping to showcase the good work they do.
