My (at time fiancé) surprised me with a tour and we had a great time. We held parrots and saw gators and parakeets. We did a large boat tour and I believe we had Captain Steve as our tour guide.

My adult daughter and I took an air boat ride yesterday at the Black Hammock. We had purchased two for one tickets, via Travelzoo, at $22.50 per person , which gave us the 30 min air boat ride and $12 each off the price of the menu from their restaurant. Staff was friendly and grounds are well kept. I had... More

Black Hammock is a hidden gem in Seminole County. Come as you are and expect to be impressed as you are whisked across Lake Jesup, visiting an ancient nursery for gator and fowl. Keep your hands and feet in the boat at all times, but bring your camera. The gators will be out and about.

As a non-Florida resident, I didn't even think about the fact that doing the boat ride at 12 in the afternoon would be mean no alligator sightings! Apparently during the heat of the summer, early mornings is best for those. But the birds were beautiful and the ride itself was enjoyable. The restaurant was just average fried gator, but the...

We used travel zoo and booked a 30 minute air boat ride and lunch for two for $49.00. That is the weekend rate it's just a few dollars less for the weekday. To clarify the lunch you are given a $24.00 credit towards your much bill at their restaurant on site. Arrived just after one pm and made contact with... More

Did a 1 hour airboat tour for 10. Tour guide took us probably a mile radius in Lake Jessup. Saw a ton of wildlife and lots of gators. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. After, got to hold and take pics with the baby gator "firecracker". Ate at the restaurant after and enjoyed a great meal. Gator tastes like chicken with... More

Our family wanted to do this tour, looked at previous reviews and sounded perfect-but when we arrived, horrible customer service! We ended up leaving and going to Midway airboat tours and couldn't have been happier! The price was cheaper, was an air conditioned store to wait in with snacks, games, actual bathrooms. Midway also had baby alligators to hold, a... More
