Gator Beach

Gator Beach

Welcome to Gator Beach, a Destin attraction hotspot known as 'the World's Greatest Aligator Park'! This exciting educational entertainment spot is actually attached to another one of Destin's most popular attractions, Fudpucker’s Beachside Bar & Grill.

Start your visit at Fudpuckers, an eatery offering a 'dining experience like no other'. Enjoy fresh seafood, steak, chicken and classic alligator dishes alongside World Famous Fudburgers and more... This restaurant is very large, ensuring groups of 4 to 400 a comfortable dining and entertainment experience.

Once you've filled yourself to the brim with delicious food, go fill yourself to the brim with unique knowledge about alligators at Gator Beach - located underneath and out front of Fudpucker’s Big Deck! At Gator Beach, you will see over 100 live American alligators - with plenty of interactive experiences to be had such as feeding the gators and having your photo taken with them.

Visit the baby alligators, just 12" in length, then watch a free show (seasonal) to learn, amongst other things, about their habitat, the world record gator, and the difference between alligators and crocodiles. You can visit Pearl the extremely rare albino alligator, and you can request guided tours of Gator Beach with your group.

If you have a bit of extra time we highly suggest signing up for the VIP Tour, a 1.5 to 2-hour experience in which you will help trainers open the park. Learn all about the animals during an exclusive adventure with a professionally trained gator handler!
