Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery

In partnership with Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries, Insta-Gator Ranch strives to preserve Louisiana wetlands and educate its visitors on regional wildlife. On the ranch, tour guides explain the ins and outs of the Louisiana alligator industry, from hatching gators to using them for food and textiles. During the tour, guests stroll along protected walkways near crystal clear waters to witness the goings-on of more than 2,000 alligators and view the specialized airplane used to scoop up alligator eggs from Louisiana swamps. Adding flair to the experience, a guide leaps into the pen to catch one before giving it a warm embrace and a box of water buffalo-flavored chocolates. Before tour's end, both kids and adults can hold and play with baby gators and have their portrait taken with the scaly youngsters. The hatchery also allows for the adoption of infant gators and houses a retail shop filled with alligator belts, wallets, heads, and more.

Customer Reviews

Our guide Royce was very entertaining and gave good information about alligators, their role in Louisiana and the conservation program which the ranch implemented in order to keep them off the endangered species list. Feeding the gators and playing with them in the catch pool was a lot of fun and our family really enjoyed this tour. Definitely recommended for all ages and the tour is also handicap accessible.
