Overview
Explore the famous swamps of New Orleans on this 2-hour small-group airboat tour. Cruise through the swamplands while exploring wildlife and plant species of the area including alligators in their natural habitat. Snap some memorable photos and enjoy the ride limited to only 6 passengers on this classic New Orleans tour.
What to Expect

Receive a complimentary pickup from your downtown New Orleans hotel before embarking on your airboat swamp tour. Hop into your airboat—with stadium seating—and sit back to enjoy the unobstructed views of the surrounding swamplands.

Breeze through the variety of environments—swamp, marsh, and lake—while looking for wildlife. Alligators are everywhere during the summer months but during winter, when they hibernate, there is still a 50/50 chance of seeing one. Look up to spot a number of bird species like eagles, pelicans, ospreys, and even owls.

These airboats are designed to go where normal boats can’t reach allowing you to zip through the swamps at up to 200 miles an hour. Snap some photos as your Captain slows down and relish this swamp and airboat ride, a unique New Orleans experience, before heading back to your hotel.

Airboat Tour with Rocky is an absolute MUST

The airboat swamp tour with Rocky was the best part of my trip to New Orleans. We had a smaller 9 passenger airboat so you are really close to the water which made the experience even better. Rocky gets the alligators to swim right up...More
