Amazing experience! Captain Steve was very informative and answered all our questions. Highly recommend this place.
Other than colder than normal weather ride was worth the price
Our only issue was the headphones, intercom system headphones would be better.
Awesome tour , great guide.

We had a great ride! Disappointed that we didn't see any gators, but the Captain gave us good information about the lake and the surrounding areas. The lake was hit hard by Irma and still had remnants of flooding. Good time had by all!!
We looked for an airboat experience and chose this one for the options, location and the site offered what we were looking for. The experience was more than we hoped for. Captain John made the experience even more enjoyable, information and fun! The experience left my boys wanting more....information, interest in the vegetation and wildlife and a love for alligators especially in the wild. His compassion for what he does and the information given was what made the experience what it was! Thanks John and lack Hammock Airboat rides!
Staff were excellent - knowledgeable and went out of their way to ensure it was an experience to remember. Would definitely recommend!
Caption Todd did a great job giving us a taste of Florida's Lake Jesup. Very informative and fun ride.
very happy with airboat ride will tell all my friends to go
We ended up selecting the ride and dine option (thanks to your wonderful admin staff)! Our airboat operator, Captain Bob, was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and were extremely impressed with Captain Bob's knowledge, wonderful personality and experience in handling the water craft! Lunch was fantastic and we will definitely return soon!
Great time thank you
Lots of birds and gators spotted Owner gave us a nice tour, would turn around to give us better view of gators Nice touch to take photo of our group on the boat Also enjoyed photos with baby gator and parrot.

Steve Harper the captain was increadable. You should pay him well. Thanks
Captain Steve did a great job. He was super knowledge about the wildlife. As natives to Florida we learned about rare birds we have never seen before. We also got to see a lot of alligators and had a great time.
Had a great time, friendly staff and captain.
We had an excellent captain and it was a beautiful ride!
Friendly, nice gift shop, things for kids to look at while they wait for the boat. Ride was informative and really interesting. All around well done
Captain Steve was very educating! Beautiful ride! Sending friends
It was relaxing and interesting. The kids loved to be able to see the alligators. We were very satisfied with the explanations and introductions to the trees, birds and alligators around us. We really enjoyed holding the baby alligator too.
Friendly and considerate staff made for a pleasurable experience
The airboat ride was awesome. My husband and I have taken 3 rides so far. We drive from Jacksonville to bring visiting family for their first airboat ride. We have seen all size alligators. In addition, the birds and other wildlife and natural plants and flowers add to the incredible experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and really sought out the alligators. We have taken the 1 hour ride all 3 times. The boat ride is so much fun that we can't imagine taking a shorter ride. We can't wait to go again. Oh, you also have to go to the restaurant and try the gator!
Fantastic experience with customer service to match!
Our Captain/Guide (Steve) was awesome! He was full of information and delivered it in a way the whole family understood and enjoyed (9 yr old to 48 yr). I would absolutely return to Black Hammock on a yearly visit when we come in from Vermont!

This was a wonderful ride with amazing scenery and an abundance of wildlife. Saw loads of gators and birds....even saw a roseatta spoonbill!
The captain did a nice job describing the wildlife around the lake. Our family really enjoyed the experience and we're happy that we had an hour because it went soooo fast! The only thing we'd change is that it would be nice to just sit and listen. Especially near bird island. But the hour tour was worth the cost.
