New Orleans Alligator Swamp Tours and Airboat Rides


Are you ready for the experience of a life time? Airboat Adventures offers personal Swamp Tours through the South Louisiana Bayous and New Orleans Swamps. We are located less than 30 minutes from the French Quarter and are 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 Bourbon Street and an exciting alternative to commercial New Orleans Swamp Tours! Get up close and personal with alligators and the exotic wildlife from endangered birds to flora and fauna not found anywhere else in the country.

If you’re planning a trip to New Orleans or the South Louisiana area and would like to experience the real Louisiana in its natural state, come and see us. When you take an airboat ride or swamp tour with Airboat Adventures, it’s like taking a step back in time and seeing Louisiana the way it was before the hustle and bustle of modern life. Make sure you bring your camera as you relax and soak up some nature as you travel high above the marshes of our Louisiana cypress swamp.

Come join our outgoing captains on a high speed Airboat Ride! You’ll be touring 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. You will be immersed in some of the most beautiful scenery in the world 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 pick-up hotline is 504-689-2005.


Thoroughly enjoyed our trip here! The tour guide was enjoyable and informative and jovial. The boat itself was amazing! Even the bus driver was informative and accommodating. Loved his text msg to confirm.


Sooo, I told my husband I wanted to go on an airboat so he took me to a swamp! We were in New Orleans for a long weekend and we wanted to enjoy an excursion that we could not enjoy just anywhere. Our guide was funny, had wonderful knowledge of the location, animals, and random facts. In addition, to the great guide, the overall busing, arriving, boats, and departure was completely organized and a well oiled machine. I did dress in layers because it was a little cooler in the morning and warmed up real nice in the afternoon. I…


Took a large friend / family group here and decided to split us up so that we would have two of the smaller boats instead of one big boat. This trip was enjoyed by everyone! The shuttle pick up guy was right on time and waited for one of our members who had to run back to her room. He was great at telling us about the area on the way there and was a lot of fun. I don’t remember who the split group’s captain was, but Captain Monkey was great. We loved his stories, he answered all our…
