Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge is a 125,000 acre wildlife preserve managed by the United States Fish & Wildlife Service. This incredible wildlife corridor was also home to an old logging and whiskey distilling community during Prohibition. Who knew the OBX had black bear and endangered red wolves? Also see snowy egrets, great blue herons, and turtles.

We had a GREAT time on our tour. The guide was very informative and helpful with getting our 3yr old comfortable in the kayak. We learned a lot on the tour and was able to see an alligator on the tour as well as other wildlife and plants unique to the area. Would recommend it to others.

The weather postponed the trip. They were accommodating in supplying us a full refund. Sad we were unable to make the trip.

Enjoyed seeing an alligator and the wildlife. Could be improved by more quiet guests! Overall, a pleasant experience.

I enjoyed the kayaking. As a newbie I got decent instruction from the guide prior to taking off. We didn’t see any critters but it was really hot so they were likely hiding. The only problem I had with the tour was the guide. A very nice girl but she spent most of her time talking to the people in the back and pretty much ignored the people in the front.
