Alligator River is a small river in eastern North Carolina, separating Dare County and Tyrrell County. It empties into Albemarle Sound. A 21-mile canal connects the Alligator River with Pungo River to its west. The Lindsey C. Warren Bridge of U.S. Route 64 crosses the river. Many believe the Alligator River is named for its shape and mere connection to the swamp.

Alligator River is protected as part of Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge.
