Make your own way to the launch point near the town of Marrero, located about 30 minutes from downtown New Orleans. After a safety briefing, board an airboat with a maximum of eight other passengers, ensuring an uncrowded and intimate ride. Zoom through the surrounding swamps on a loud and fast ride powered by a 454 Chevy engine and propeller fan.

When your captain slows the engine, look out for native plant species and Louisiana wildlife, including American alligators lurking in the water and marshes. It's a great chance to see these massive reptiles up close. After about two hours on the water, return to the starting point.
