Worth every penny because our guide (Renan-sp?) brought the alligators practically right to us! I caught on video his lifting up by the chin the King Kong of gators in that swamp---and he kissed it! Egads! The swamp was beautiful and haunting. I recommend the six seat airboat because we got to travel in smaller channels. Also he sped around... More

If you have never ridden in an airboat I really suggest you do so. It is so much fun to speed across the water and swamps. You will have ear protection because it is really loud and you will make many stops when you spot alligators or the guide is pointing out other interesting things. It's about an hour and... More

Took a tour on Memorial Day 2015. Our captain lured, teased, and fed wild alligators. He would grab them and use a piece of rope to get the alligators to put on a "show" for us. After the tour I went to complain but was told a manager was not available.

we all loved the speed of the boat and the green natural swamp area. A must if you are in the area. About 40 min drive from French Quarters

I was skeptical when we first stopped at this roadside attraction. My unease grew when we got out of the car and there was a large group of young guys guzzling beer - turns out they were there for a bachelor party. Luckily they had three separate boats of varying sizes and they were in a different one than we... More

Where do I begin? This company is very well organized. We reserved spots on one of their small airboats (seats 6 plus the captain). They gave a safety briefing and supplied life jackets and ear protection. We were able to go full throttle in the big canals, and then quietly wind our way through the smaller canals. The narratives by... More

Crazy, right? No, this was so much fun, you've got to do it. We took a small airboat tour with this group. We were picked up at out hotel in a very comfortable tour bus. Big Joe was our driver and pointed out many interesting things on our way out to the swamp. Our tour itself was conducted by Rennan,... More

Wow we had a great time on this tour. We booked the small boat ride for six and were very pleased. The smaller group allowed for lots of questions and a very personalized tour. Our boat guide was Rennen. He was fantastic and very knowledgeable. He was also fearless when it came to the alligators. We spotted more than a... More

We were able to see a couple of alligators and enjoy the smaller 6 passenger boat before the thunder, lightening and torrential rains struck. Our guide was able to get us back safely before it got too wet. We were able to get a refund which was terrific of the company. Would love to do it again!

Totally awesome. Been traveling in/out of New Orleans for over 40 years and kept saying "one day I'm doing this tour (oops-adventure). Well this trip I booked and was extremely satisfied beyond expectation. Our boat captain Mike was informative, funny, and had some interesting on-board antics that you'll have to experience yourself. Totally recommend to everyone especially families. Thanks Airboat... More
