Teachers today have become more creative than ever in trying to give our youth a learning experience that is impactful and one-of-a-kind. With hands-on practice and interesting experiences, kids will retain much more information by doing rather being told how to do. For a great field trip experience in Louisiana, kids of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy a world famous swamp tour offered by Airboat Adventures. By selecting Airboat Adventures for a field trip, kids and adults alike have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Louisiana wilderness surrounded by a diverse set of plants and animals native to Louisiana.
While on a swamp tour, visitors will have the chance to immerse themselves in the nature of the Louisiana wetlands. Contrary to what some may believe, swamps tours are enjoyable throughout the entire calendar year, regardless of temperatures. With this in mind, if your child’s school does not go on a field trip to Airboat Adventures, a swamp tour is the perfect summer break experience that will not only be fun, but educational! Although enjoyable throughout the year, the most popular times are April, late October, and early November. Alligators can be seen throughout the whole year, but guests have the best opportunities to see gators when the temperatures are above 70 degrees and a bit warmer. The guides on tours at Airboat Adventures are Louisiana born and bred and have been exploring the windy waterways since they were kids. With this experience in mind, they can help answer almost any questions that parents and kids alike may have. Furthermore, each of the guides has been certified by the U.S Coast Guard to ensure a safe experience as well as a fun one.
< Although some worry about mosquitoes on swamp tours, this is rarely an issue. Whirliwigs and dragonflies do a good job of keeping the mosquito population down and while moving in the fan-boat, mosquitoes can't keep up. Our boats come in 2 sizes; small and large. The small boats can accommodate 6-8 passengers while the large boats can hold 15-27 passengers. For those staying in New Orleans that wish to go on a swamp tour, they may utilize the hotel pickup features which is offered in packages for both small and large boats.
