This was a “must-do” on my trip to New Orleans I did much research and found Airboat Adventures was similar in price to all other companies out there, but the reviews were favorable so we went with it and we were glad we did I also did a Google search and came up with a $10 off per person coupon...

Paul was our guide. He was AMAZING! So knowledgable of the swamp. He answered all of our questions. We got to play with a baby gator that he pulled from his pocket! He was very kind and has a fantastic sense of humor! We were all happy and loved our time on the airboat! Thank you Paul for making our... More

Was very excited to experience an "authentic" bayou tour. Guests herded like cattle. Very little history, detail or interesting tidbits shared by guide. Saw alligators, yes, but literally zero other interesting species. The tour motored through pre-cleared forestry canals, so was fairly blah; no small inlets or out of the way places, etc. Was still nice to see something different,... More

Great experience on the bayou - took one of the smaller boats and they really fly. Our guide provided some excellent information regarding the swamp now and back in the day. Not many gators as they are still hibernating in November. Still a lot of fun.

This is definitely swamp lite. We saw a couple small gators and the people were friendly but this is a pretty typic as long tourist business. You're on an airboat for two hours and that's the hilight...but even then you're not zipping thru a true swamp but rather putting around a marshy area with little to no wildlife. About ten... More

We had an excellent guide who expertly showed us through the swamp. He spotted gators and other wildlife long before we could see them. He gave us a lot of history of the area and information on the wildlife. He even let us hold a baby alligator. We will go back when it's warmer outside and the gators are more... More

The airboat ride is much better than the larger boat with more passengers. The airboat gets much faster and squeezes in to spots with low water where wildlife is more likely to be. Unfortunately, we went at the end of November at the latest time so we saw only a few small gators and a few birds. But this trip... More

Took the small boat ride with one other couple. Capt'n Kendel was our guide. He was extremely informative. Great value for the money spent.

We took the swamp tour. Got picked up right from our hotel at 9 AM; shuttled to the place where the tour started; did the tour from 10:00-11:30; back to our hotel by 12:15. There were a few swamp tour options; we did the 10 person pontoon option. Reason being, with the smaller boat and smaller group there are 2... More

it was a blast! beautiful scenery only saw 2 gators and a few large bird. hearing the history and about the land was great. if you sit up front you may get wet, kinda gross considering how much bacteria is in the swamp... sitting in the back could be loud, but you get to hear the captain talking.
