Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, refers to a series of eccentric Carnival celebrations that involve decadent parades, music, food, drink, and entertainment. While Mardi Gras may only be one day technically, the festivities that surround this holiday last for weeks. It is no wonder that Mardi Gras draws people from all over the world to the diverse city of New Orleans. Mardi Gras celebrations are exciting and wild, and can become overwhelming at times, especially for families with kids. If you are visiting the beautiful city of New Orleans this Mardi Gras season and are looking for a break from the parades and chaos, come take a swamp tour on one of our fast-paced airboats at Airboat Adventures! The perfect activity for families, parties, and people of all ages, a swamp tour through Louisiana’s beautiful wetlands is a great way to spend a beautiful spring day.
When you need a break from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans this carnival season, an airboat ride through southern Louisiana’s swamps is for you. Instead of pushing through crowds of people and dodging beads and other objects being thrown at you, you will be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy a breezy ride through nature’s landscape. Our unique swap tours will take you through 20,000 acres of tidewater cypress swamp, where you will have the chance to see wildlife like you’ve never see it before. This particular region of Louisiana is home to a diverse population of wildlife and plants, including aquatic and moist-soil vegetation. While on our swamp tour, you will will be gliding through some of the most jaw-dropping scenery in the world, brushing past lush vegetation and cruising beneath copious canopies of dripping Spanish moss. You will have the chance to see a variety of exotic animals while on the tour, including alligators, snakes, egrets, herons, ibis, turtles, hawks, bald eagles, owls, and more. An experience of a lifetime, a swamp tour with Airboat Adventures is something you do not want to miss.
