Visitors to the Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center will meet Pearl, Safari, and Journey, albino alligators; three of approximately only 100 albino alligators worldwide.  Or at the other end of the spectrum, guests can see Midnight, a melanistic alligator.  This type of alligator, even rarer than albinos, have an excess of pigmentation causing their skin and even their eyes to be jet black.  Rarest of all, guests will meet, Sky and Horizon, piebald alligators, which exhibit mottled black and white skin patterns.  Extremely rare, these are estimated to be two of less than 20 alligators worldwide with coloration of this type.

The “Pass”, as locals refer to it, was created by a hurricane on September 27, 1848. A pirate, John Levique, made the first passage through the newly created pass. Hence the name, Johns Pass.

Over one hundred merchants inhabit the Village with unique retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shelling tours, boat rentals, parasailing and jet skiing.
