We had never done an air boat ride before and it was so much more than we ever expected. Could have stayed out on the lake all day - it was all so beautiful. Captain Todd was extremely knowledgeable and enjoyed his personality very much. Will definitely make another reservation in the future and it goes without saying, we want Captain Todd again!!!! Thank you for showing our family such a fantastic time : )
The guide was outstanding and very informative
Todd did a great job.. my friend from Canada had a ball. Thanks!
We had a blast!!! This was one of the top favorite things we did on our vacation! The weather really stunk the day we went out, but we still had so much fun. And we saw a lot of alligators even with the crummy weather! We highly recommend Black Hammock. This was a very fun experience and we would definitely do it again.
I thought it was very good. Didn't know what to expect because I've never been on an airboat before. Was hopeful we could go a little slower through some of the areas so that my sons and my sister could get a good look at the alligators. In many of the areas we were going so fast at all I saw was several smaller alligators just scramble to get out of the way. We did see a few though going at a slower rate of speed which was good just wish there could've been more of that. Driver was very good and explained everything and had a good sense of humor. Overall it was satisfying
The guide was terrific. Unfortunately we didn't have great weather so wildlife was limited. While we were somewhat disappointed it had nothing to do with the service.
We recommend this activity for all of our out-of-state visitors. From the knowledgeable guide, to the mamma gators, not to mention the thrill of the airboat ride, we once again were not disappointed. Our guests loved the introduction to the "real Florida". Thank you. Ron & Teresa Greene
Overall a great experience!
