We had a great time on the boat. We got to see the different areas of the bayou and lots of native wildlife. The guide was knowledgeable and very nice. Comparative to other tours, this one was well priced and covered more area.

We had a really good time. We saw a ton of alligators. Their was a lot of wildlife. I would definitely do this again. A family with kids was on the same boat and they really like it also.

We took our children, ages 11, 9 & 7, and a great time was had by all. Our guide share his knowledge of the area and we saw many types of wildlife. We saw baby gators to over 10 foot gators, turtles, nutria, muskrats and two bald eagles. It was an amazing experiment that we would recommend to our family and friends.

There is a $2 parking fee at the marina and be sure to wear sunblock.

After extensive review of airboat tours near New Orleans, we made the decision to drive about one hour out of the city to Gibson for the Bayou Black tour. We do not regret this decision! We wanted an authentic swamp airboat tour. It seemed like the tours in New Orleans would be to touristy. We also choose the airboat because it could go into places that a regular boat could not. Our airboat was the only one in the area in Gibson. It was awesome! Wayne was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and provided us with wonderful commentary of the scenery. We didn't know if we would see any alligators, because of the time of year, but we saw at least six, with one being around 12 feet in length. Wayne seemed to know all the hidden spots for the wildlife. Even though our tour was only suppose to be 1 1/2 hours, it ended up being 2. There is a two dollar fee to park your car in the parking lot, but that didn't seem unreasonable after paying for parking in New Orleans.
