Very fair price for something I could never do back home. 90 minutes was actually 2 hours and worth every penny. Tucker provided great personal knowledge (having grown up there) and great information (college educated). Highlight of our time in BR.

Last week I booked a last minute excursion at Basin Landing and they penciled me in with no problem. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Really great customer service. My tour guide, Tucker Friedman, was very knowledgable and made it a pleasant air boat ride. I will be definitely recommending this to everyone looking for a fantastic experience near... More

Love the look of this swamp and basin and was honestly afraid to get too close to water not knowing wats down there watching me but also I think this area is home to swamp people

Fun airboat swamp tour. We were driving back to Houston from Baton Rouge looking from something to break up the drive. Knowledgeable tour guide, had alligators eating out of his hand. Took 2 hours.

Really enjoyed this 90 minute airboat ride through the swamp with a personable and well-informed guide who explained a lot about the history and ecology of the area as well as demonstrated his expertise in drawing out and handling of alligators. Saw a number of adults and baby alligators and learned a lot in the process. Very highly recommended. Incidentally,... More

My sister was in from Illinois and wanted to see gators and go on an airboat ride. So we called the Atchafalaya Basin Landing to see if they did yours on fairly short notice. They needed an hour which was good because we were driving from Baton Rouge. Our tour guide was cool, concerned for our safety without being overly... More

Alligators are now longer an endangered species in Louisiana although there are controls on hunting (It’s licensed and only in September.) To see them in the wild take one of the many tours from the banks of the various streams which make up the largest swamp reserve in North America. I went with Basin Landing Airboat Tours into the Henderson... More

We took the airboat tour with my dad. ( it was his Father's Day present from us). The captain was very knowledgable and informative of the area. Everyone was very friendly. After we were done, I was ready to go again. Thank you for a wonderful time.

We took our young boys on the tour and had a great time overall. While the rain made it a little challenging, the boat's canopy helped a lot. Captain Tucker was a lot of fun and also had tarps to help keep us more dry when it rained. I enjoyed learning more about the history of the basin from Tucker.... More

This was the best swamp tour we have been on- the first that was on an airboat which really added to the experience. The scenery was truly amazing. The area we were in was pristine and unspoiled, a lot of birds to see and alligators, the trees and Spanish moss made for some great photos. The people at the landing... More
