Living and visiting South Louisiana has a tremendous amount of perks. The weather is warm, the people are friendly, and the culture is fun and enjoyable. Furthermore, the nature and wildlife in Louisiana is among the best in the country. However, inside the heart of the cities it can be difficult to experience the wonderful flora and fauna that is so close.
For those that wish to enjoy the nature that Louisiana has to offer, taking a swamp tour is a perfect option! A swamp tour with Airboat Adventures is an all encompassing and fun opportunity for an animal lovers from all over.
One of the most attractive aspects of taking a swamp tour with Airboat Adventures is that there is never a bad time to take a tour. Some may be concerned that they won’t see much in the winter, but that’s entirely untrue. The shift of seasons is actually fantastic because tourists can see a new group of animals. With this in mind, adventuring with Airboat Adventures more than once is not uncommon because groups love the varied experience. Although all times are great for an Airboat Adventures tour, the most popular times are April, late October, and early November. One aspect that makes winter different than summer is that the grass that is around 6 feet tall in the summer is only a few inches during the winter. This allows for greater visibility of the surrounding area. When the grass is low, guests see more of the Louisiana famous nutrias and serene deer. Furthermore, migratory birds come in the winter so guests can see birds such as waterfowls and even the elusive bald eagles.
Guests looking to see alligators are in luck because gators are visible year round. In the winter time they can be harder to find when the temperatures are particularly cold, but with the warm Louisiana winters the gators still come around. Other beautiful animals the guests can often view on their Airboat Adventures tour include; snakes, turtles, egrets, herons, ibis, raccoons, and more!
One of the best aspects of Airboat Adventure’s swamp tours is the readily available knowledge that can be shared by the amiable tour guides. The Airboat Adventures guides are highly capable to lead these animal lover tours because each of them has grown up in the area. Growing up in South Louisiana, all of the guides are expert fisherman and know the waterways better than anyone. In addition to their personal experience with the area, each guide has practical experience in that they are all expert airboat captains that are certified by the U.S. Coast Guard.
Swamp tours are offered in different packages so guests can have their pick of what kind of experience that they have. Each tour lasts about 1 hour 45 minutes to 2 hours. Groups come in different sizes, so there are two sizes of boats offered. If groups are wishing for a longer experience or they really wish to see the sunset, groups can opt to pay an additional fee. Tours depart at several times throughout the day including ; 9AM, 12PM, 2PM, and seasonally 4PM and 6PM tours are offered as well.
