Overview
Explore the famous swamps of New Orleans on this small-group airboat tour.

  • Discover alligators in their natural habitat and capture great photos
  • 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.

Excellent way to get a feel for swamps, marshlands and bayous of America. We opted for the faster, smaller fan-boats which allows better access to more secluded locations. Our local guide was friendly and informative over the course of the hour and a half trip and the weather,

We do apologize for the transportation. We are currently dealing with a lot of construction and road closures downtown due to a collapsed building. So, in order to speed up our door to door service, we sometimes have other buses help so that we can get our guests to where they need to be in a timely manner. We do appreciate your patience though and we are so glad that you did have a great experience on our swamp tour. Thank you for the positive review!

This tour was a blast. It was a great way to see some nature and get away from the city. Educational as well.
