What trips to you have planned in the future? Troy says, "Next year in 2018, to honor our ongoing theme of wildlife conservation with Crocstar Clothing we are visiting researchers in Central and South America to check out the great work they are doing with crocodiles and other wildlife. We want to support their work by bringing ecotourists to visit the field sites of croc conservation. Those are the top CrocStars in my opinion. We had a blast sponsoring the CrocFest in June to support Cuban Crocodiles and we just wanna have fun and do more. Anyone out there that wants to come is welcome."

The 1st day starts out with meeting up at Murphy's Pub just before midnight to cheer on the trip with a few beers. We leave at 12:00 for the longest leg of the trip to New Orleans. The group arrives early afternoon in New Orleans to visit the Audubon Zoo for lessons in animal training, in this case alligators. After spending the afternoon at the zoo we check into the hotel in the French Quarter where we will have a good meal and a ghost tour. Free time is given to the group as we will be leaving early the next morning.
Texas Bound for the 2nd day to see Crocodile Encounter. Just outside of Houston, TX is a crocodile and wildlife park which houses many species of crocodiles, hoof stock and really cool reptiles. We will be visiting the crew there to see what's new. Crocodile Encounter gives personal tours with an unforgettable experience. This is the farthest west the trip goes and we start heading back East for Gator Country, home of Gator 911. Gary Saurage is owner and operator of the facility and shows his guests a good ole time with some of his giant alligators, the largest in Texas.
The evening comes as we have a back yard Cajun meal with famous biochemist and crocodile expert Dr. Mark Merchant. The hospitality is first rate with Mark. After dinner the group goes out on an adventure air boating to survey alligator nests and catching alligators with Mark as he continues his research in the Texas region. This long adventurous day will end in Beaumont, TX.
Third day starts with a ride to Kleibert's is next on the list. The crew will hang out there and get a great Louisiana welcome from the famous T. Mike. This guy is never a downer and shows everyone a great time while visiting the family facility. After spending a morning and afternoon with the Kleiberts the group will continue East to Alligator Alley in Alabama to see some of the largest Gators from Florida and Alabama.
The Crocstar Tour is back in Florida for the night. The last day is more fun while visiting one of Floridas wonders the Itchetucknee River where tubing and snorkeling on a hot day make a great way to start the day. After several hours of fun the day will finish up in Deland, Florida at Reptile Discover Center and Smooth Waters Wildlife for a Barbecue. The trip ends at Murphy's Arms Pub where everyone departs an adventure they are sure to talk about for months to come. To join the crocstar tour you need to register and make a deposit.
