We had so much fun with Captain Brad! I am so glad I chose the hotel pickup option, as it would have been a long (and expensive) Uber ride. Plus when you arrived at the swamp there were signs posted about how challenging Ubers are to come by, which makes sense when you see your surroundings. The large airboat was a great time - those boats are fast! I was worried about it feeling crowded, but Brad was able to answer everyone's questions throughout the day and it didn't feel like too big a crowd. We were able to hold a baby alligator and even "pet" a 10 footer in the wild. I was so impressed with Brad's knowledge and clear passion for the animals, swamp, and environment. He did a great job explaining everything from the history of the area to how to handle wild alligators, and in between. I would 10/10 recommend this tour to anyone!

Overall: Well worth the money, and really enjoyed the experience, even during the winter!

Friendly customer service that picked us up at our Airbnb and drove to the swamp for the tour where we got our tickets and boarded the ride. The tour itself was around 45 minutes on the boat and we learned a lot about gators and swamp.

Make sure you have cash to tip everyone, and rent the blanket if it in the 60s or lower, you won't regret it.

We were picked up from our hotel and rode a comfortable mini bus. Keith, our driver, was pleasant and witty. He drove us to Louisiana Tour Company’s airboat dock. There we boarded and met Danny, our tour guide and swamp expert :-) Danny excelled at maneuvering the airboat, sometimes at high speed, and scoped out all the wildlife for us to see. Then he went above and beyond by stopping to feed marshmallows to one big gator and his smaller gator buddy who got to come up on the boat to greet us. Danny was incredibly knowledgeable and funny, and yet professional all while keeping us safe. This was a fun and fascinating experience. We highly recommend it.

Captain Jason provided a really compelling and multi-faceted window into the ecosystem of the bayous, swamps, and marshes. He was captivating in his descriptions of the damages brought about by Hurricane Ida and the threats facing this delicate ecosystem. Highly recommended for those looking to not just see alligators (which the tour was packed full of), but to see the bigger picture.

We were lucky enough to get Captain Jason and he was fabulous! He gave us some really good insight into what is currently happening to the swamps in LA and is clearly very passionate about the swamps and the environment. We saw some alligators and had a great time on the airboat.

I've done the boat tour before (with a different company) and the airboat is much better. Faster (not super fast but definitely not as slow as the as the boat) and I feel like you get into places that the larger boat cannot.

Do it (and ask for Jason if you can!).

This was a highlight of our trip. A total blast, beautifully scenic, & a good couple hours of bliss! Matt was goofy and he shared a lot about the swamp and it's inhabitants. There is something special about cruising on a powerful airboat through the wetlands of Louisiana. An absolute dream come true! I recommend renting blankets & wearing a wind breaker if you run cold bc these bad bois go fast and you get a little wet..
P.S. Wear glasses if you can.

Great experience. We took the covered boat, and we are extremely happy we did. One of us gets a bit motion sick so this was an easy, smooth experience with shade. We were able to see quite a bit of the park during our tour, and the tour guide was unforgettable. We haven’t used any other tour companies but would still recommend this as an easy way to get out into the park as a day trip from New Orleans. We were a bit concerned about the interaction with wildlife (we prefer to leave the animals be) - but some of the gaters came by name, so it's really quite domesticated.

Despite initially being let down with the pick-up from our apartment an alternative pick-up was arranged for the next day and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our captain was very knowledgeable and entertaining and we were very lucky to see an adult alligator despite being February. It made my daughter's holiday.

It was an awesome tour! I would 100% recommend Ernie as a tour guide. His knowledge of the history of the Bayou and on alligators is impressive and highly engaging. I could have talked to him all day if the bus didn't have to drive me back to the city! Absolutely book it and even the large boats are smaller in size and provide a more personal atmosphere.

It was amazing!
We did the pick up and drop off large airboat!
Dave our tour guide was very informative and cracked all kinds of jokes. He had us a baby gator we could hold and made it more of a great experience. We we come down for Halloween this is the time the gators are starting to “hibernate” but luckily we did get to see some and we seen a raccoon and several birds. This is such a beautiful place. We took the last ride of the day so sun was setting and it was stunning!
Highly recommended…
