Went for 30 minute airboat ride (wanted a longer ride, but they must be reserved at least a day in advance). It was a blast! The 30 minute ride was fine. We saw the obligatory gators, including a nesting area with many juveniles. Lots of sea birds.

Three generations went on the airboat ride to see alligators at the wrong time of year for something different to do. We all enjoyed ourselves, just to experience something together. We saw six baby gators in the wild, despite the time of year. Captain Steve was a great guide!

The Black Hammock provides some of the best air-boat rides and tours that highlight the Florida alligators. The guides are great, know just where to take you... and, by the way, Lake Jesup has probably the largest alligator population in the whole state. I have taken family, friends (particularly those from outside the US) and they have all loved the... More

Loved Captain Ron!! He was amazing! My mom and her husband were in Orlando to visit from California and we wanted to take them on an adventure they can't do out there. Well this was it! Even though we didn't see any gators on the airboat ride (which we expected), we did see some baby alligators after the ride up... More

I was looking for an adventure to occupy half the day. I found it! Black Hammock Adventure filled the bill perfectly! This id a family friend off the beaten path adventure that is filled with a little history, a little nature and a fun airboat glide through both the open water and swamps. Unfortunately, we did not see any gators,... More

This was a very big highlight of our week long stay in Florida. Captain Steve was wonderful and we will definitely be returning some day hopefully soon. This is not something that I would have planned if not for our traveling companions but I am so glad we did it.

My husband and I were in the area on vacation and decided to look for something off the beaten path. Tired of the crowds at Disney & Universal, we decided a boat ride might be fun. After some searching, we found Black Hammock. We originally went for just the airboat tour. It runs every 30 minutes for $27 each. So... More
