We opted for the small airboat adventure and it was interesting and fun. Between the ride, gators and information of the area, it was worth the time. The driver who picked us from the hotel was full of local history and interesting facts. Two tours in one!

For a midwestern guy who has never been to the bayou, this was a great intro. Our guides were knowledgeable and really knew the area and about local wildlife.Our trip was cut a little short due to the lady about to wet herself, but overall a good tour. A special nod to our transportation guy Glen who braved road closures... More

The guide (Capt. Richie) was very knowledgeable and explained not only the gators but also the environmental issues that involve the swamps. He showed us several bird types that were neat. We had fun and learned a lot. It was a high light of our trip.

This was an interesting tour thanks to Kevin our airboat captain. He tooks us into the "fingers" of the swamp where we actually saw a mama gator and some of her babies along with several other gator sightings. He had good knowledge of the swamp and who doesn't like a fast boat!

If you want to see the gators being fed, you have to go in warm weather. In October they aren't that interested in eating. I don't know if this is a negative but the Captains LA accent was so thick it took me a while to get used to it and understand what he was saying. But that's kind of... More

Not a lot to add beyond what is already in the other reviews. Lots of gators and they had a small one on board to hold. My only very minor complaint is a lot of it felt a little scripted (I bet it's nearly identical from boat to boat.) Worth spending an afternoon and the price was reasonable given what... More

We had a lot of fun on our airboat adventure tour! We had traveled to New Orleans in November 2013 and we were warned by our guide that we may not see any gators. It was okay because being on the boat alone was fun enough for me! Also, the scenery of the plants, wildlife, and traveling along the swap... More

This was a great time. Lotsa gators and turtles and the swamp was so beautiful and peaceful. We took a small boat and were glad we did. Easier to get close and take pictures. TIP: if the weather is really hot, go on an overcast day (summer months). If the weather is not hot, like low eighties and below, go... More

We did the small boat trip with Airboat Adventures. They picked us up in New Orleans (they were early so make sure that you are ready) and the trip out to the site of the swamp boats was very informative - we heard a lot about Hurricane Katrina and how/where the water got into New Orleans and the consequences. There... More

We went with a group of friends visiting New Orleans for the first time. We never took a swamp tour before and this definitely was what I was hoping for. The airboat glided across the bayou, and the captain drifted through the turns, which was pretty fun. The captain in general was really knowledgeable about the area and the animals.... More
