We went on a 30 minute Airboat Ride and had a blast! We saw different types of birds, an alligator and so much beautiful scenery. They also have a restaurant, 3 bars and a gift shop right next to it. A must for everyone!!

We took the hour long tour and it was great. The airboat ride was fun, going back into the wetland areas, seeing alligator nesting sites, and curving our way through the tall grasses at speed.

We went to Black Hammond for the airboat ride. It was a morning rider therefore I can not comment on the restaurant or bar they had on the premises. The boat was timely, seemed well maintained and he a friendly and knowledgeable Captain at the stick! We saw some great Florida swamp and lake scenery. We saw a few alligators... More

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
