This is a great excursion with very knowledgeable guides and the wild life experience is great. We did the air boat tour and fed gators up close and personal. It was a rainy day but that didn't stand in the way for having a fun...More

We had a blast! Not typically fond of loud toys, but wanted to experience an airboat and was not disappointed. In addition we drew the lucky straw and had Paul (the resident alligator wrestler) as our guide. What a treat. Though it is “winter” here,...More

Boats were comfortable, only 10 people on our boat. Guide was fantastic and incredibly knowledgeable. I would suggest everyone make it part of their New Orleans visit

Decided to do this trip as it's our first time in New Orleans, it was what I expected and more, the guide was really informative and stopped and pointed out all the interesting bits and wildlife on the way. Would definately recommend to others

Two main tips 1) the smaller the boat the better the experience 2) only go when the weather is and has been warm otherwise you won’t see any alligators. They shouldn’t even run these tours in the winter. I went years ago in June and...More

I agree with the other comments. It can be chilly when the boat travels at the higher speeds. Layering in always a great idea.
