Christopher Gillette, otherwise known as Crocodile Chris offers a unique and personal experience up close and personal with real live gators. While there are several in the water, the main focus is on the largest critter, Casper – who Chris has been working with for 10 years and understands extremely well, like an alligator whisperer.
Casper is between 9-10ft long and weighs about 250lbs. While most people find gators to be terrifying, Chris sees the beauty in this large reptile and wants to share that with others. We can kind of see it too. Just look at that cute little grin!
You can document your adrenaline-fueled, once in a lifetime experience with your own waterproof camera or go-pro if you’d like; If not, Chris offers an option to set up photos with his equipment. You’ll never have another picture like it and you’ll have proof that you’re a beautiful bad-ass.
As a tip, they recommend wearing a wetsuit, since the water can sometimes get quite chilly. Most will go in their swimsuits since wetsuits aren’t required. You will, however, be needing a mask, snorkel, and weight belt; If you don’t have your own equipment, that’s okay – they have extra.
The Underwater Alligator Experience is all done through The Everglades Outpost in Homestead Florida. Safety is super important, so only 1 person can go in at a time and you must be 18 or older to participate. Chris will be with you at all times during your terrifyingly cool experience.
If you’re feeling brave, the opportunity to swim with gators is typically done on Fridays and Saturdays, but almost any day can be arranged for a private session. If you’d like to take this once in a lifetime dip that you’ll never forget.
THIS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE – IS A COMPLETE THRILL RUSH
When I stuck my my foot in the water Mr gator looked at me and
I chickened out!
ENJOY YOU BRAVE TRAVELERS!
