Captain Sandy was the very best. She made our half-hour airboat ride an experience we will never forget. She was funny and very informative. She took us across the lake and we saw a 12 foot alligator. WOW!!! All the staff was very helpful and welcoming. Great drinks at the bar in a casual relaxed environment. This is one of the best things we did on our 10 day vacation in Daytona. Thank you,

Despite being hot and a time in which we don’t see a lot of gators, it was our first time taking a tour on an Air boat. The captain was very knowledgeable, experienced and made our ride fun, pleasant and smooth! We only saw one gator in the wild, but lots of different birds. It was fun going through /over the mangroves. At the end, they bring a 2 yo gator for us to hold. Yes, I kissed the gator! Good times! Friendly staff snd good margaritas! Enjoy!

We had a great time at Black Hammock! It's a cute little place hidden and tucked away from the busy streets but close enough to not feel secluded. It has a bird area, small gator area, a small restaurant, and bar and gift shop. They do 30min airboat tours every half hour or so. The price is fair for what you get. With our purchase we were even able to take pictures with an adorable baby gator. Our tour guide provided us with Sanitized ear covers and we were off! She was super informative and funny. We were able to see many bird species, a little turtle, a handful of gators and even a newly deceased gator! The airboat could set a pretty large group but still had speed and power. It was so much fun flying through the marsh, especially when we did u- turns. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and highly recommend it!

We had a very good time on a quick airboat tour today. The Florida weather was amazing, as usual. It is something you can take your teenage children and your 78 year old mother to and they all enjoy it. It is a quick ride but you can also see the birds and the gators on the property for free. The airboat is noisy so you won't be doing any talking on the ride. It is worth it though when the airboat skips over the plant life in the lake. We live only a few miles from Black Hammock. I will go again with more people from out of town.
