Where can you see alligators in Daytona Beach?

Below are some popular videos of alligators in Daytona Beach.  If you are just wanting to look at some gators, the Congo River Mini-golf has about 20 baby alligators in a water pen.  If you are concerned about alligators, then consider they won’t go in the intercoastal waterway or Ocean because of the salt water (brackish water).  When in this type of water you have sharks (lol).  

Also note that you just don’t swim or go near most pond like water here.  Not because of alligators but bugs and mosquitoes.  If you are fishing then you should be aware.  As a local I have not seen any random alligators roaming about anywhere I have tread.  Halifax River or the Intercoastal Waterway are clear of alligators.

If you go inland from Daytona like 20 miles or head to the glades you will see many more alligators.  Lake Okeechobee in Florida has the most alligators due to overall size but Lake Jesup has about 13,000 all to itself.

If fear is your concern, there are about 7 unprovoked alligator attacks per year in Florida State.  If you are kayaking places like the Tomoka River, there are gators.  They will not attack you and you should just ignore them.  Odds are one in 2.4 million that you will be attacked!
