Hilton Head Island Gator Locator!

Wondering where to find alligators on Hilton Head Island?

Here are some places where you will find gators on the island or nearby:

  • Port Royal Plantation/Highway 278 - Gators have been sighted from the bike path near mile marker #6 at the entrance to Port Royal Plantation. Look for them on the South Side of the entrance on the golf course. There is a large lagoon just across the fairway where you will find them sunning themselves.

  • Jarvis Creek Park - Public park next to Walmart near mile marker #3. Great dock out into the lake for safe watching up close. Alligators and turtles will approach the dock looking for a handout. But remember, don't feed the alligators! Once they lose their fear of humans, they must be destroyed. If you feed him, you are killing him!

  • Hilton Head Prep - Inside Sea Pines near the back entrance. Almost always a gator sunning himself at the lagoons on Lawton Drive at the entrance to the nature preserve and the school. $5 gate pass to enter Sea Pines.

  • Sea Pines Nature Preserve - Near the back entrance of Sea Pines inside the plantation. Ask the security gate how to get there. Fishing Lake usually has several alligators near the dock. $5 gate pass to enter Sea Pines.

  • Savannah National Wildlife Refuge - Highway 17 on the way to Savannah. Home to hundreds of wild gators plus many other endangered or threatened species!

  • Spring Lake - Inside Hilton Head Plantation at Spring Lake recreation area. Nice lake with docks for safe observation. Not open to the general public.

  • Crossings Park - Just outside the park on Arrow Road there is a small lagoon beside the street next to the paved bike path. We often see two big gators sunning here.
