About Airboat Tours
We are a small family owned business. We have been in business since 1994. We invite you take a lazy, leisurely ride or a more adventurous ride. We have six passenger airboats that can reach speed speeds up to 60 mph. Our airboats can acutally ride on the marsh or deep in the cypress swamp where most tours can not go. You can take the 15 passenger United State Coast Guard certified airboats that can run the shallows at 40 mph. Our tour is just 25 minutes southwest of the Orleans Airport, 45 minutes from downtown N. O., and 90 minutes southeast of Baton Rouge. We travel to a quiet fishing village where time seems to stand still. Discover one of the most unique and individualized swamp rides in Louisiana. We are minutes away from the Plantations. We have great Cajun cooking locally. RV parks are nearby. Please call for availablity and prices. Children under five are free under 13 years old are discounted $10. We do not take anyone under 2 years old. Custom tours are available.

We were visiting New Orleans for my husband's birthday and wanted to do something extra special on his actual birthday besides a great dinner in NOLA. This was definitely the ticket! It was about a 50 minute ride but it didn't feel that long and was definitely worth the drive. We did the 1 hour tour with Captain Craig who was funny, extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He went out of his way to be sure we all had a great time, met all the local alligators and taught us a lot about the area. We had some up close and personal interactions with more than a few alligators! It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We will do it again when we come back with our daughter :)

This was my third time out with these guys and they are the best! I have been on other airboat rides in LA(am a native) and this one is my favorite. Scenery is pretty, guides are knowledgeable, and alligators are amazing. Have been out in the fall as well when it is colder and the alligators are hibernating-it is still a great trip.

We recently took a tour on a smaller boat with another couple on board and Jeremy as our guide. From start to finish the experience exceeded our expectations. Check in was simple with friendly chit-chat until time to depart. Jeremy was very knowledgable and provided interesting commentary throughout. The alligators, up close, were a highlight and Jeremy found the right balance of fast and thrilling racing over the water with up close views of the vegetation and wildlife. We drove two hours out of our way to do this tour and would do it again in a second. Truly a highlight of our trip

We went out on an airboat tour back in December it was one of the best tours I've been on. There were 6 of us in the group and everyone loved it. It's a family run business and they're good people. Jeremy is a topnotch tour guide who is a wealth of information. If you're in New Orleans you have to drive out and take an airboat tour. It's a must do.
