The food was not very good with small portions. Too expensive for the quality of the food. Service was friendly but slow even though they were not very crowded. The best part was the live gators and beautiful views.

I thought they keep their timings. Called and left message twice but like Lazzzzzzyyyyy Gators no reply. So the question became William Shakespearean... "To Go Or Not To Go Is The Question" We are a group of 5 and wanted a private or a 1 hour tour

My family has never been on an airboat ride. I ran across this place on the Internet, watched their news special & read most of the reviews. Seems legit.

This was an amazing place. It was so fun to see the alligators swimming right below the docks in the water. Staff was friendly and boat ride was great. The parrots were fun to feed and the talked. This was our favorite part of our Florida vacation. I can't wait to go back next year.

Took the family for a fun adventure on the airboat ride. Our operator was excellent. He had humor and knowledge. We saw alligators. Best in the spring months. You get a photo moment after holding a small gator. Kids loved it. There is a restaurant there so you can grab some gator bites. Often deals on Groupon.

I had went on an air boat ride in the everglades last year and was excited to take my wife and son on one. Reviews were great for this place so we went on the scenic drive to Lake Jesup. We were told up front by the "captain" it was a hot day and the gators were down deep and... More

My two adult kids came out in April and one day we decided to try out the Black Hammock air boat ride....what a fun thing to do! The boat captains are hilarious and very well versed in ALL the wildlife on Lake Jessup. My kids loved it and had their picture taken holding a 3 year old alligator...YIKES! Better them... More

Found this place while driving around Jesup Lake to see if we could find a place to see an alligator. Walked around the place a little, not fancy, looks a little run down. We went back to the car and took a vote if we should pay the $29 a person. Family of 5 with 3 teens. Three of us... More

We went to Black Hammock in early afternoon. It was HOT and there were really no alligators to be found. If you really want to see alligators you must go early morning I would think before it gets too hot. The boat ride was very nice and informative and there were lots of cool birds to see. Getting your picture... More
