  • Discover alligators in their natural habitat and capture great photos
  • Enjoy a more personalized experience with a maximum of nine guests
What to Expect
Receive a free 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; during winter, when they hibernate, there is still a 50/50 chance of seeing one. Look up to spot a number of bird species, such as 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 mph (322 kph). 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.

The airboat tour was fun and very informative. Our guide was a local who lived just down the road so he made us feel like friends that he was showing around the area and not tourists. We learned quite a bit about the bayou ecosystem and even got to pet a baby alligator. The

It was an interesting trip. Captain Bebop did a good job educating us on the wildlife. I know why we had to stop to talk with the noise the engine made. However, I loved when we were moving through the bayou and seeing the scenery. I would recommend this experience.

We absolutely loved our tour! Cannot recommend highly enough. Do this, and you will not regret it! We were picked up from out French Quarter Hotel and transported to our destination. We enjoyed a combination of fast thrills, and up-close gator encounters. We will do this again.
