We went during hibernating season (which they should tell you about PRIOR to booking your trip of $75 but they don't), so we didn't see any crocodiles or any wildlife on the swamp, however the pictures were breathtaking. We had an amazing tour guide (and I apologize I don't remember his name) but he was absolutely amazing! He gave us... More

Airboat Adventures picked us up right from our hotel and were extremely easy to deal with. The swamp tour which we went on was just what we expected- lots of time on the water in the airboat and in the hands of a very knowledgeable and expert captain- Louie! Unfortunately we did not see any alligators in the water as... More

My boyfriend and I were took the smaller boat with just 2 other people. Our tour guide was incredibly friendly and knowledgable. He also happily answered all of our questions! (I had a lot!) I didn't realize that because it was cold that we probably weren't going to see gators...but honestly, the tour was still a 10. I can't wait... More

We had a great trip into the bayou with this company. It was cold so we didn't see any gators but our guide did give us a real appreciation of what the bayou is about and just why the locals love it so much. The bayou has a strangely enchanting beauty that I had never understood before. Ours was a... More

This was a pretty fun tour! It was winter so we did't get to see any alligators. The tour guide was really great. He was funny and very knowledgeable. Tip= take a jacket! It gets really cold on the airboat because of the wind!

In summary, we had a ball and really enjoyed the tour! We are an Australian couple road tripping across the US, and the Louisiana swamps and bayou's were on our 'must do' list, We have spent a lot of time travelling through the crocodile country and tropical wet lands of northern Australia, but this was a whole other experience and...

I've grown up in the south, so seeing an Alligator is not a new adventure to me. The trip with Sam for my birthday was great! My family learned so much about the Alligators that we didn't know.We even learned a lot about the environment, human impact, a little on the foliage, etc. It was winter, so there were only... More

This is a mixture of a nice cozy tour through the swamps and a high speed race though the waterways. You can feel the spray providing a light mist over your face. As you realize your having a great time and it cant get any better,........... then comes the gaters!!!

My family of 5 (three boys ages 14, 12, 10) took an airboat tour on December 31. It was in the low 50's and sunny and fairly comfortable with a light jacket on land. However, the temperature drops SUBSTANTIALLY once you are on the water, and it was freezing. Be warned and dress warmly. Even with the cold, we had... More

We went on Christmas eve and it was FREEZING which meant that the gators were keeping their heads down. However, I'd still recommend the experience and the guide, who'd lived all his life on the swamps, was a wealth of knowledge.
