We went as a family on a Saturday midday. Drove from near MSY and made it in maybe a little over an hour. Check in was a little slow, but we boarded quickly and we're off. Took about a half hour or so to get down to the gators and the kids and adults all had a good time. We... More

A great couple of hours in the swamp, The Airboat tours shuttle bus picked us up from the hotel exactly when it said it would. Comfortable and air conditioned for the Gide to Lafitte. We opted for the small airboat which held s maximum of 6 people, this was more expensive but got us a lot closer to the action... More

Was nervous about taking this trip because didn't know what to expect. Was pleasantly surprised and our captain-Ritchie Rich was absolutely wonderful! My family of five took the smaller boat tour and was worth every penny. Captain Ritchie was fun and very informative. Had a great time and highly suggest for families! Our 10 year old and 17 year old... More

We booked the trip via their shop on Decateur street in New orleans. For 3 of us it cost $220 and that was picking us up from our hotel. The bus arrived promptly and the driver pointed out local points of interest along the way. We got checked in at their shop and allocated a boat number. We were on... More

Okay, so I wanted to ride on one of those airboats____wind in my hair and all that. SO MUCH BETTER! Yes wind and a little water spray will be in your hair and face. But watching your guide talk the alligators into performing is amazing and scary at the same time. Our guide, Corey, swam with the alligators! Hot, cooling,... More

Wife and I visited NOLA for 1st time and was told by many of our California friends, "You gotta do a swamp tour." We booked with Airboat Adventures and we were not disappointed at all. The tour (cut a little short due to thunderstorm and lightening) was amazing! Our captain, Captain Earl, was personable, informed, entertaining, humorous, congenial and friendly... More

We went on a 6 person boat with Allen as our guide. It was the most fun we had in new Orleans. We all laughed much. Saw tons of gators and the boat ride itself was a blast.
