If you want to see what Florida was yesterday...this is the place. Looking for a nice place to grab a late night bite or drinks, with friends or a date, with a casual lay back attitude ? Then this is it...or a Sunday afternoon, just relaxing near the water and watching the " Gators " ( big and small )... More

My son and family had a wonderful time on the airboat ride at Black Hammock; I had done it years earlier so did not accompany them. They enjoyed the whole experience including the free alligator exhibit on site. There are food and beverages, as well as, a small gift shop where you may have your picture taken holding an alligator.

We wanted to find something to do other than the theme parks when our daughters visited and this was just perfect. We did a 30 minute airboat ride and saw a lot of different birds and a lot of alligators. Even before we got in the boat, we saw alligators in the water and a few big ones sunning themselves... More

This place is fine, though I think over priced. The wildlife area just looks tired and run down, and there really is nothing to do there outside of take the airboat ride. We paid for the 1 hour tour, but I don't think its worth the extra money - take the 30 minute one and you will be fine. The... More

My brother and I took my four-year-old niece to Black Hammock last month. We fed the alligators, looked at the birds, took an air boat ride, and she even got to hold a live baby alligator! She had so much fun and so did my brother and I. The air boat ride was about 30-40 minutes long and very educational.... More

We took an airboat ride - saw lots of gators, all kinds of birds. I think if I were to go again I'd like a little longer ride. It's an affordable outing and we had a very knowledgeable guide. I'd like to see bird island toward the end of March, beginning of April when the Audubon Society estimates there will... More

Great time on the Airboat. The captain was very friendly and knowledgeable and was eager to answer all questions. Tip for early spring , bring a sweatshirt or jacket as the boat goes fast across the lake and can get quite cold .

I've eaten at the Black Hammock Restaurant before and its always been good, so I figured it was the perfect place to bring our out of town friends. We'll what a mistake that was, The fall off the bone ribs were nothing close to that description, more like over cooked stuck to the bone ribs. The fish tacos needed more... More

Went on an Airboat Ride at Black Hammock Adventures! Not my first rodeo, but just as enjoyable as any previous experience in airboating in Central Florida. Our captain was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the creatures that live here! We saw a lot of gator! They are hanging around the docks before you even get on the airboat!... More

We were looking for something to do near Orlando that did not involve the theme parks. I came across Black Hammock Adventures while surfing TripAdvisor. What a great change from Orlando! We drove about 45 minutes and arrived at Black Hammock. There were 10 of us and we bought tickets for the airboat ride. Since no one else was there... More
