My husband and I decided on a pontoon boat excursion to the swamps to see gators. I am deathly afraid of those critters, BUT, I had a great time on this adventure. We saw a lot of gators, one snake, and a few egrets in the water. We fed the gators some marshmallows and watched as they swam around our... More

We had so much fun on this tour. Go early if its Summer, we took the 7am pick up and were thankful, by the time we got back to the office the sun was out in full force and even the sunscreen was struggling. Our guide was great though and a small group of 6 made it even better.

This was the most exciting part of our trip to NOLA. We saw approx. 15-20 gators all different in size. Got to hold a baby and feed one of the one's in the water. The tour guides really enjoy their job they live and breathe it for sure. It was nice and the rain was better than going in the... More

We booked the small boat and we were extremely pleased with our adventure. Our guide Alan was knowledgeable funny and safety conscience. We saw 10 alligators and a racoon. The overcast sky was appreciated. We got to hold the baby alligator and glad I have photo of it. No one would have believed that I held one. Surprised the alligators... More

I booked this tour with Gray Line since they have a shuttle from the city. Our driver, Kevin, was really nice and explained to us what we have to do ones we are at the location of airboat adventures and made a little stop for us to take a picture of a very old oak tree. At the location you... More

The swamp tour was great and Captain EJ was full of information. We saw 11 gators, fed them and held a baby gator. Plus we saw some turtles and other swamp life. I am so glad we chose this tour, it was well worth it.

This is a great little adventure that I would recommend everyone do at least once. We were staying in NOLA and reserved though our hotel. we picked a small airboat which is in my opinion the only way to go. The boat only fits 6 or 8 people so its a very small group which is great. Our Guide was... More

This was the highlight of our trip in New Orleans. We went on the smaller boat, which held a maximum of 8 people, making our experience easier to have conversations. Our tour guide Brad was extremely knowledgable having grown up in the area. The ease and speed in which he could get the airboat in and out of the channels... More
