I'm your private guide.
All hunts are private.
I'll be with you on your hunt to help.
Of course—just ask him! However, your guide’s primary responsibility is to keep you safe while you go in for the kill. If you want pictures or videos of you in action, you might want to ask someone else in your party to capture those intense moments so your guide can focus on your safety.
Most of our guides are Florida natives. They’ve been hunting since they were babies and love the outdoors.
No! We specialize in large parties so bring your whole crew!
Yes! Even if you are a solo hunter, it will still be private experience.

We have three different alligator size-ranges to choose from. Our 4 to 6 alligator hunt is $800. Our 6 to 9 foot alligator hunt is $1,500. Our 9 to 12 foot alligator hunt is $2,500.
All of our hunting times have been proven successful. Morning hunts are recommended in the summer as it tends to get warmer later in the day. Afternoon hunts are recommended during the winter months when it's colder in the morning.
Daytime alligator hunts are a lot more exciting! There is nothing like seeing a wild alligator thrashing in the Florida sun! Nighttime alligator hunting is for experienced hunters only. Hunting alligators at night can be fun, but you can't see much in the dark.
You will have as many hours needed to complete your hunt. Your hunt is over once each hunter in your party has killed an alligator. How long your hunt will last depends on many different factors such as alligator size, weapons, hunting style, and how many hunters are in your party. On average, you can complete your hunt within two to four hours. Some hunters combine wild boar hunting, fishing, or another of our exciting experiences with their alligator hunt.
No, not at this time. Public land hunts have a lot of restrictions when it comes to where and how you can hunt. Since the properties have not been pre-scouted there is no way for your guide to know where you'll have the best success—that's a lot of pressure on him!
Tags are only for public land hunts. If you participate in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s lottery system for public land hunts, the cost of the tag with licenses can add up to over $1,000.00—not including boat rentals or guides!

Wild hog meat has a rich nutty flavor.
Expect the smallest size alligator in your size-range, and you will not be disappointed if you get something bigger! For example, choose the 6 to 9 foot size range if you will be happy with a 6-foot alligator.
We can’t guarantee an exact size alligator as so little of the animal is showing above water. Your guide will look at the distance from the eyes to the tip of the snout to estimate length. Typically, the longer that distance is, the bigger the alligator will be.
If you have your heart set on an exact size alligator, unfortunately, we are not the right guide service for you. Look for outfitters that price alligators by an exact size instead of a size-range.
