Black Hammock Adventures charters picturesque airboat rides atop the gator-infested waters of Lake Jesup. Every 30 minutes, a boat equipped with Goliath’s desk fan skims earplugged riders past alligators and other lake fauna at speeds up to 45 miles per hour. Experienced guides specialize in spotting sunning reptiles as they pilot the vessel safely through narrow creeks and shallow wetlands. With feet safely back on land, guests can stop by Black Hammock’s wildlife exhibit, enjoy a lively libation at the Lazy Gator Bar, or hand over their cameras as they pose for pictures with Black Hammock’s 12-foot-long alligator, Hammy, at his dockside cage, or barter for an autograph with hunks of raw meat.

Black Hammock Adventures

When French native Joel Martin was young, his family moved to Africa. While there, Joel learned to stalk many jungle creatures including crocodiles with the help of his Malgache friends. Years later, in 1995, Martin packed up his own family and moved them to Florida, where the heat and humidity reminded him of his beloved childhood in Africa. Today he owns and operates Black Hammock Adventures, located near some of Orlando's busiest attractions, and charters picturesque airboat rides on the waters of Lake Jesup. His boat, equipped with Goliath's desk fan, skims earplugged riders past lake fauna at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. During rides, experienced guides pilot the vessel safely through narrow creeks and shallow wetlands, and help tourists to spot wildlife and at times, sunning reptiles. After zooming by the scenery, guests can stop by Black Hammock's free wildlife exhibit, enjoy a lively libation at the Lazy Gator Bar with live music every weekend, sit down at the full service restaurant featuring Executive Chef Barth that is known for its fried gator tail, or hand over their cameras as they pose for pictures with a live baby alligator or barter for an autograph with hunks of raw meat.
