Our guide was a local and provided a thorough and educational tour of the bayou and the marshlands. We saw several alligators that our tour guide safely called to the edge of the boat (the alligators were not aggressive). The views of the bayou were unbelievably beautiful -like nothing I'd ever seen before. The airboat ride was fun, fast at... More

I was a bit skeptical when my friends booked us on a swamp tour. It was hot and the idea of sitting out on a boat for an hour or two didn't appear. However we met Captain Steve who sailed us into the swamps. Within the first 10minutes of the tour, we saw a gator, and then another, and another.... More

Simply I loved this! The guide, Sam, was very friendly and knowledgeable if not a little crazy around the gators. We saw lots of wildlife esp gators and Sam even fed them and had them right up against the boat. Seeing a 12ft gator that close up is a really amazing experience. We sped along the back and open waters... More

We took the morning tour from our hotel. It's a 30 minute ride in an air conditioned shuttle bus, and just under 2 hours at the tour. They have restrooms and some tourist stuff you can buy at the dock. They also sell some snacks in an air conditioned building. We bought a bottle of water to take on the... More

Was recommended to this swamp tour by another tourist I me in New Orleans. I drove to the location. I was a bit disappointed. First, I was expecting a bit of a more intimate, laid-back experience. I guess I was expecting a couple of cajun boys runnin' an airboat from their back porch on the bayou. To the contrary is... More

We took our church youth group on an airboat tour with Airboat Adventures while we were in town for a mission trip. I'm pretty sure this was the highlight of the trip for the whole group. The kids called it "Goin' swampin'." When a 10 ft. gator swam up to our boat and essentially posed for photos the kids went... More

This was my 4th swamp tour in the NOLA area and my son's 1st. Enjoyed the airboat ride and the opportunity to see some gators. We got to feed them a few marshmallows and hold a baby. I have been on better tours that had more swamp and wildlife but the entertainment value was there. Recommend it for sure but... More

Hands down! Stop reading reviews and book this NOW. :) you will thank me. Also, pay the extra for the small 6 pax airboat. Worth it!!! We did the 12 PM and had a blast. Wear sunscreen and protect your skin people.

My partner & I travelling from Australia highly recommend Airboat Adventures. We spent a little extra for the smaller tour (6 people) as we prefer more intimate experiences. Sam was a fantastic tour guide; knowledgable, entertaining and above all DARING! We loved the interactions and encounters with the Alligators. This is a MUST DO in New Orleans. Reviews did not...
