If I had it to do over, I would pay the extra for the small boat. The large boat was ok, but the boat was too big, and you lost the thrill of the high speed airboat. We had a beautiful day, guide was good, saw some alligators. The tour was on their private property, so you didn't really get... More

No need to go on any more than what has been said because everyone will have a different experience. This is the wild so no staging of experiences. Our Captain was incredible and simply wow what a great time!

Great tour! Very educational and also a lot of fun. Not far from the French Quarter. Tour guides get you up close and personal with the gators. Always felt safe, but it is definitely an adventure. Would recommend to anyone looking to get away from the city and experience more of Louisiana.

We were picked up at our hotel and had a very informative bus ride to Lafitte to Airboat Adventures dock. I'd still love to go to the Drive Thru Daquiri place that was pointed out to us! Our airboat driver was informative, interesting and showed us some really neat sights, a lot of alligators and very interesting history of the... More

We went on an air boat tour on Sunday, February 12th. It was a wonderfully warm and sunny day for February so the ride was comfortable. We saw plenty of alligators, turtles, and birds because it was warm and sunny. The air boat ride was about an hour and a half long and very enjoyable. I would suggest you bring... More

I was here a year ago this month. (Drop down below didn't give me that choice) Just had memories pop up on Facebook that reminded me of the great time we had. Lots of gators to be seen. Airboat ride was fun. The guide was a hoot....but also knowledgeable I'd definitely recommend it for Bayou flavor sightseeing..

Great experience!!!! Had so much fun. We purchased tickets for the large boat tour. We thought we had made a bad decision by not getting on the airboat. We were wrong. We had so much fun without all the noise from the airboat. We saw a lot of gators. Captain Ansom was awesome!!! Next trip to new Orleans we will... More

If you like being on the water and seeing the swamps, gators, etc, don't miss it!! We went on the tour in early February and saw lots of gators. No snakes, spiders or raccoons but our guide, T-Earle, was entertaining and knowledgeable about the flora, fauna, Cajun life and one heck of a great Captain. Loved the airboat ride. Recommend...

These guys know how to run a tour. The send out multiple boats at once, and you rarely see each other. We lucked out, and saw gators at every turn, it warmed up the week we were there. I highly recommend splurging on the smaller boat for the full experience. The only bummer was the living quarters for their albino... More
