  • Enjoy a more personalized experience with a maximum of six 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.

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.

Our tour guide was awesome, entertaining and informative. Glad we chose the small boat tour, was super fun speeding through the waterways and getting a little "sideways" on the turns. We saw so many alligators! Even watched our guide feed one some chicken and marshmallows.
