On our short visit to New Orleans we knew we had to visit the bayou and see an alligator or two. Our hotel concierge arranged everything for us and a shuttle picked us up at 9am. Our bus driver, Big Joe, gave us lots of information on our way to the airboats making the drive very informative and enjoyable. The... More

I called to book a private group airboat tour with Airboat Adventures (I had about made up my mind), but the service over the phone was so bad that it changed my mind. The guy who answered the phone was incredibly rude. Never seen anything like it. I had barely finished my first sentence, when he interrupted me with "What... More

This was a great family trip for 4. ...we went out on the small boat with Captain Monkey. Yes, that's his name :). We enjoyed a 2 hour tour of the swamps and bayou with a knowledgable guide. We were able to see close up a nearly 12' gator named Kong and even held baby alligators. The airboat ride is... More

Had an excellent time in the swamp today with Airboat Adventures. Nothing like getting real close to nature with an excellent guide. I enjoyed the personal stories about living near the swamp and working in the swamp. I didn't want the trip to end! I wanted to share my pictures - hopefully they'll inspire you to want to take this... More

We went out in the morning on a small boat. There were four in our family and another couple. The trip lasted close to two hours and it was a mix of nature watching and all out speed. The tour guide was very experienced and was able to find places where we could see different wildlife, especially alligators. We actually... More

On a short vacation in New Orleans with 6 friends from France we decided to see the swamps and some gators. We had an awesome, knowledgeable guide, had a fun ride on the small, private boat, and we saw plenty of alligators up close and even held a baby one! Definitely bring a camera (but hold on to it- the... More

Me and my sisters are all in our twenties and we all had a blast! We forgot our guides name but he has a brother named Paul, he did a great job and even got in the water! We got to hold a baby gator and the gift shop is fairly priced. I suggest going to the first tour of... More

The best airboat tour ever! We saw alligators and other animals. Our boat driver very good and had a baby alligator for us to pet and take pictures. The scenery was amazing and an awesome ride! You just got to do it to experience it. Best tour for your money. Will do it again for sure! Had a great driver... More

My family and I went on the small airboat ride this week. Our guide, Paul (I think), was great. One of my daughters is recovering from knee surgery so he took it a bit easier on us. The ride was a lot of fun and our guide was very informative. I think this was the favorite thing from our vacation!... More
