Black Hammock Adventures offers scenic airboat rides on Lake Jesup. The lake, part of the Saint Johns River, is home to the largest lake population of alligators in the USA. Over 10,000 alligators are estimated to lurk in those waters. Lake Jesup is also thought to have one of the largest colonies of wading birds in the country. The airboat captains know all the best spots to see gators, birds, and other wildlife. After your adventure, relax at the laid-back Lazy Gator Bar and enjoy old Florida charm. If you ever wanted to try gator tail, the Gator Bites at The Black Hammock Restaurant are a good bet. The meat is made tender by a special process and deep fried keeping it juicy and mild-flavored.
