New Orleans Swamp Tours and Airboat Rides


Airboat Adventures offers personal Swamp Tours through the South Louisiana Bayous and Swamps.  We are located less than 30 minutes from the French Quarter and open 7 days a week.  We will even pick you up from any of the downtown New Orleans hotels! Just minutes from the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, Airboat Adventures offers visitors a break from bawdy Bourbon Street and an exciting alternative to commercial Swamp Tours!

Come join our outgoing captains on a high speed Airboat Ride! You’ll be touring a large tract (20,000 acres) of tidewater cypress swamp. It’s a dynamic ecosystem supporting many types of aquatic and moist-soil vegetation, as well as a diverse wildlife population. And you’ll witness some of the most beautiful scenery around as we take you through the swamp and into the bayous lined with moss-draped cypress and tupelo-gum trees. During your 1 hour 45 minute – 2 hour tour you’ll have opportunities to see alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets, herons and ibis, and we sometimes see hawks, owls and bald eagles.

New Orleans’ most popular Airboat Swamp Tour has many packages to choose from. Just call our friendly staff and they can accommodate any size party. We have several tours leaving daily so choose the time that is best for you and prepare for some real excitement. Our booking, reservation, and pickup hotline is 504-689-2005.
