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

Being the owner of a travel company, I was looking for something different for my student groups to do in Orlando besides Disney, Universal, SeaWorld, and other major attractions. After I did some extensive research, I decided to take a chance and take my 95 students from England to the Black Hammock Adventures. The second we stepped on this wonderful... More

Left Kissimmee about 830am had breakfast on route, takes about an hour to get to, it's easy to find , we managed without a sat nav just a little help from google and a road map. The boat ride ride was special, we were the only family on the boat on a quiet October day. We saw loads of gators,... More

Great place to go for lunch, for free, or for fun. For free, go and see the gators sunning on the shore, or the ones in captivity, and the birds in the cages. Look over beautiful Lake Jesup (most alligator infested in Central FL). For lunch or dinner, enjoy the fish camp food to include the Buffalo Gator Bites, which... More

I'm a local, and have experienced the air boats tours on many occasions, mostly with visiting family and friends. I often check Groupon for specials during the year. Comparing my boat trips near cape Canaveral, and just south of Orlando, Black Hammock is my favorite. I especially enjoy Bird Island and the wonderful array of our fowl friends. I highly... More

My family regularly visits the Black Hammock. We take all our out of town guests here for air boat rides and to see Lake Jessup's wonderful wildlife. The owner has cleaned this place up over the years and improved its overall attractiveness.

We went on an airboat ride at this establishment and my husband had a fabulous time on the airboat. I liked it as well, although the air was cool so the alligators were few and far between on the lake. The camp looked a bit dilapidated but I'm not sure if that's because it's low season or not. The boats... More

We enjoyed the boat ride a great deal. Seeing the gators wasn't a big priority for us since we're local, but we did get to see a nest of just hatched gators, and later saw a couple big ones in front of the boat. Nothing scary, there were several kids aboard, and all enjoyed it. If you really want to... More
