From marker 79 cross Tarpon Bay to the entrance to Alligator Creek. The last few times we paddled the Waterway, marker 77 was missing from the entrance to Alligator Creek. The creek is not difficult to find, however, as Tarpon Bay funnels into it. Alligator Creek is lovely, narrow, and winding. Pioneer Totch Brown, in his memoir, Totch: A Life in the Everglades, wrote of his dad’s claim that Gator Bay Creek got its name from an alligator nobody could kill. Before laws that prohibited alligator hunting were passed in the 1960s, many residents of the Everglades made their living by capturing these reptiles, skinning them, and profiting from the sale of the hides. Alligators (see page 245) were brought to the brink of extinction before these laws were passed, but the population has rebounded dramatically. You will likely see alligators here or elsewhere on your Waterway trip.
