On June 17th retired basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar visited the Black Hammock. He enjoyed a private VIP airboat ride through Lake Jesup, cypress trees and around Bird Island. Our airboat rides near Orlando provide a “Real Florida” experience! We are happy to have such a talented visitor at our family owned and operated attraction :). His wife experienced the wrath of Hammy from just a few feet away. Hammy is our resident 12′ alligator and animal ambassador.
