The swamps of Louisiana may be one of the most underappreciated ecosystems in the United States. The level of biodiversity and unique wildlife teeming in the shallow Louisiana swamps is truly astounding. Looking for the best way to experience this special habitat? Airboat Adventures is waiting to take you on the ride of your life and educate you on the special ecosystem that is the Louisiana swamps!
Visiting New Orleans provides no shortage of great destinations for tasty food and plenty of entertainment. If you’re looking to get out of the city and gain a deeper understanding of the state of Louisiana, there is no better way to do so than to take an Airboat Ride with airboat adventures. We will take you on the ride of a lifetime through Louisiana’s Bayous and swamps. You won’t have to take a long drive, either, as Airboat Adventures is located just thirty minutes from the French Quarter. What’s more, we’ll even pick you up from any downtown New Orleans hotel! Our specialty fan boats will deliver you face to face with some of the most scenic nature that Louisiana has to offer.
Our captains are very passionate about their work, and their breadth of knowledge and long history with the Bayous of Louisiana promise to provide an educational experience as well as a scenic one. Over 20,000 acres of tidewater cypress swamp are open to discover. Witness cypress trees with moss hanging from its branches and moist-soil vegetation supporting wildlife such as hawks, raccoons, alligators, turtles, and bald eagles. If you’re looking for a particularly beautiful time to visit the swamp, we suggest the early evening tour, as the early morning line provides warmer tones for photography. For about two hours, you will be taken on a high-speed airboat adventure that promises to inspire awe!
Airboat Adventures is open seven days a week and has numerous fan boats onsite. We offer tours to small parties of 6 to 8 passengers or larger parties of up to 27 passengers. There is no better way to escape the city for a day and enjoy nature than with Airboat Adventures. All you have to do is call our friendly staff for booking, reservation, or pick-up at 504-689-2005. We are located at 5145 Fleming Park Rd, Lafitte, La 70067. We look forward to giving you an unforgettable adventure!
