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.

Airboat Adventures is a well-run, efficient operation. Our captain, George, really did a fantastic job in creating a fun experience for us. George is so such a good guy, you just want to have him over for beer and bbq. We booked the smaller airboat and were very happy with our choice. The boats are very loud, but hearing protection is provided. We were fortunate to have absolutely perfect weather for our early November visit. This made the boat ride all the more enjoyable. We saw several gators, turtles, and birds while out in the old logging canals. It really…


Went here with my family. Why not.. ? when will I ever try it again ? They picked us up from our french quarter hotel. 1/2 hour later we’re in the bayou somewhere. We checked in and 15 minutes later about a dozen air boats went out. 6-10 people each. They go to different areas of the lake , stop and talk about the area, history, showed us aligators up close. It was great ! A must


We went to Airboat Adventures and had a great time. Their pickup service is efficient and on time. I would recommend paying a little more for the smaller airboat, it is well worth it. We only saw two alligators but it is not the season for them to be out. Our guide, Rennan, was fantastic. Born and raised in the area, he was very knowledgeable and fun. If you have not visited the swamp, I highly recommend this company.
