Welcome to  Yacht Cove 

Alligators/Wildlife

From the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources:

It is illegal to harass or throw things at alligators. 

They are living organisms that warrant respect and it is not productive to annoy them. Molesting, injuring or killing alligators is punishable by law with fines up to $2500 and 30 days in jail.

Keep your pets and children away from alligators. 

Large alligators do not recognize the difference between domestic pets and wild food sources. When they are hungry, alligators act on their hunting instinct and might attempt to feed on your house pet if given the opportunity.

Keep your dogs on leashes around alligators. Do not allow your dogs or children to swim in waters inhabited by alligators, or to drink or play at the water’s edge. To an alligator, a splash potentially means a food source is in the water.

If you see anyone harassing or feeding alligators:  Please call Deputy Henderson with the Beaufort County Sheriffs office at 843.592.0789.
