Thoroughly enjoyed this airboat ride. They wouldn't go out as they were watching the weather and asked us to wait for 30 minutes till a storm passed. Filled me with confidence that they knew what they were doing. They were bang on with the times. Raced across the lake and saw Alligators nesting. Good guide too. Not too expensive either.

I spent some time before travelling from the UK, looking into airboat operators in the Orlando area. I contacted others before getting in touch with Black Hammock. Other operators, did not give me the impression that my business was essential to them, but when I did eventually find Black Hammock, several items down the search engine listings, what a gem...

Enjoyed an airboat ride to see alligators in Lake Jessup . Was expecting to see a couple of gators at a distance, was pleasantly suprised at the size of alligators and how close we got. Great photos and the guide was both entertaining and knowledgeable. Groupon included a meal in which we tried the fish tacos which were very good.

This place is awesome. It holds a lot of memories, eating the frog legs, gator and catfish. The bar area caters to locals and bikers alike.

Went back to the Black Hammock this past Sunday and had a great time. The owner Joel took good care of our small group of 20 people and we really enjoyed the live band as well as the beautiful weather. The air-boat ride was also pretty good but I wished we could've seen a few more gators. The weather was... More

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. Always heard lake Jesup was beautiful & was a neat place to visit, so we went. Arrived at approx 9:45am, took the ride by 11:15am & had lunch at their restaurant... More
