Overview
Explore the famous swamps of New Orleans on this small-group airboat tour. Cruise through the swamplands while exploring plant species and wildlife of the area, including alligators, in their natural habitat. Snap some memorable photos and enjoy the ride limited to only six passengers on this classic New Orleans tour.
What to Expect

Receive a free pickup from your Downtown New Orleans hotel before embarking on your airboat swamp tour. Hop into your airboat—with stadium seating—and sit back to enjoy the unobstructed views of the surrounding swamplands.

Breeze through the variety of environments—swamp, marsh, and lake—while looking for wildlife. Alligators are everywhere during the summer months; during winter, when they hibernate, there is still a 50/50 chance of seeing one. Look up to spot a number of bird species, such as eagles, pelicans, ospreys, and even owls.

These airboats are designed to go where normal boats can’t reach, allowing you to zip through the swamps at up to 200 mph (322 kph). Snap some photos as your captain slows down, and relish this swamp and airboat ride—a unique New Orleans experience—before heading back to your hotel.

We went one one of the early trips, we had no problems with bugs then. Unfortunately I don’t know about the later tours.
