Cruise through the lush Louisiana bayou on an airboat ride that combines classic southern scenery with the excitement of speeding through the waterways. Ideal for New Orleans’ visitors without a car, this tour transports you out of the city and into nature. Once there, you can experience a side of Louisiana that most New Orleans visitors never get a chance to enjoy.

    Board a small airboat and relax as your professional airboat captain takes you comfortably through marshes and deep into secluded bayous. On your 1.5-hour (roughly) airboat ride, hold on tight as the airboat reaches speeds of up to 45 mph (72 kph)! See abundant cypress trees, Louisiana’s state tree, and watch for native wildlife. After your airboat tour, you’ll return to your hotel.
