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.

Our shuttle arrived on time and we were greeted by a friendly driver. Geared towards tourist with bus loads of people coming and going they have you on the boat in no time! We opted for the smaller 6 passenger airboat for the thrill and more personal tour. Our guide “J” was great..friendly, witty and very knowledgable. For tourist this is very convenient and a great way to see the swamp. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour!

This was an awesome excursion from New Orleans. We were picked up at our hotel in the French quarter and the ride to the site was in and of itself a tour. The driver–Glenn–narrated the trip and we learned a ton about NO even before we got into the boat. The boat captain, Lance, was an incredible guide. He shared extensive knowledge of the area and truly made the trip one of our most memorable experiences. Ask for Lance; he is great.


It was our first time on an Airboat. Nice tour. It’s great that we were pick up and dropped off at tour hotel on a coach bus. The bayou was nice. We saw quite a bit of alligators and some birds. The tour guide was great.
