We brought our family, who is visiting from Maryland, to the Black Hammock for an airboat ride. Captain John was so good with the 7 kids---he let them hold a baby alligator and let us take many pictures of them. There were alligators, birds and snakes and a cool gift shop for their entertainment.Our visitors loved the airboat ride and... More

This establishment is the definition of a dive. If you enjoy seeing animals caged and neglected. Such as alligators. Snakes.birds etc. This is the place to see it. They claim to be inspected monthly by the state of Florida to determine if the animals are cared for properly. Clearly that was a lie. Avoid this place. Bad food and the... More

We took an air boat ride with Captain John. He was informative and pleasant! The staff was friendly and it was a new experience for us to be on Lake Jessup instead of driving over it. I do wish the gift shop attendants were more informative about the animals.

Our time at The Black Hammock was a great experience. We rented out the Pontoon Boat for a wild group of 25 older adults and we all had a great time on Lake Jesup. While we didn't get to see but 2 baby alligators, the tour was lovely and the captain ever so informative, willing to answer all our crazy... More

We had a LivingSocial coupon to try this place, the 30min airboat ride. We loved it! We took the first trip in the morning, the day was beautiful, the lake was calm, and no mosquitoes. Captain Mike was great, he gave us a tour through the oldest trees, showed us the gator nesting (and explain to us the process of... More

Came here from a Groupon, and did the pontoon ecotour. Nice mellow boat ride, with lots of interesting bird watching. It was way too warm to see any alligators as they were hiding in the shade, but Captain John made the ride very fun and enjoyable. Had drinks/food at the bar, which was delicious. The 2 for one margaritas and... More

Why did we wait so long??? We've lived in the Orlando area for over 35 years - always wanted to take an airboat ride...see a piece of wild beautiful Florida on our own Lake Jessup. Well- we finally made it - and we hit the jackpot with the best airboat captain of them all! :) We took the 30 minute... More

I took my 13 year old son on a 30 minute airboat ride because he has never been on one. Captain Steve did a great job showing us the sites, explaining things about the environment and wildlife...and yes-the gators. We got to see a mother gator up close as she hissed to protect her eggs. We went out to Bird... More
