Alligators are all up and down coastal NC or more to the point inner coastal NC. For exaample-Take a look at the northern section of NC and you'll find the Alligator River.
They are not saltwater species. Usually encounters with alligators along the coastal region is when we have had a severe and extended drought or heavy rains. During these events the water salinity in the back creeks and rivers changes and the alligators either move further up or further down stream than where they normally would be.
