Discover the atmospheric swamps surrounding New Orleans on a fascinating 2-hour airboat tour, led by a professional guide. In a small group, head to the outskirts of the city and climb aboard an airboat destined for the rich flora and fauna of the swamplands. Enrich your natural knowledge as you listen to intriguing commentary from your guide; scour the scenery for sightings of ferocious alligators; and feel your adrenaline levels surge as you accelerate and reach high speeds.
What to Expect
This tour is a combination of both a swamp tour and an airboat ride. Your tour guide will stop on your journey to allow for photos and alligator encounters! This airboat is a larger capacity vessel with the ability to seat up to 16 passengers. This is perfect for larger groups. The seating on your airboat is stadium style seating, so anyone seated in front of you will not be obstructing your view.

Each airboat tour is unique and unscripted, you never know what's going to be waiting for your group behind the next turn. Airboats are driven by a 454 Chevy Engine, bringing speeds of your boat up to 25 miles an hour. Airboats are propelled by a large fan that blow air behind the vessel. On this tour, you will reach places and visit areas which normal boats and vehicles are unable to access.

The experience was great. We saw alligators and exotic birds including Osprey and Bald Eagle. Our guide/ driver was very knowledgable and even showed us his pet alligator. The trip lasted almost two hours and was very informative. A real experience
