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 at Airboat Adventures and book a tour of the Louisiana swamp. You’ll be touring 20,000 acres of tidewater cypress swamp. 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. During your roughly 2-hour tour you’ll have opportunities to see alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets, herons, and ibis. You may even see hawks, owls and bald eagles. When you take a Louisiana swamp tour or boat ride 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. 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. So, come join our outgoing captains on a high-speed Airboat Ride with one of our special Louisiana swamp tours.
We are proud to be one of the best swamp tours in Louisiana. Our alligator tours provide great fun and a hands-on learning experience for people of all ages. 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. All of our guides are expert airboat captains certified by the U.S. Coast Guard. They were all born and raised in Louisiana with a love for the Bayou and everything you can do in it, and they are sure to show you a good time. Airboat Adventures wants you to remember it’s not just a wildlife tour… it’s an adventure!
For about two hours, you and your family can have the time of your lives on one of our Airboat Swamp Tours through the flourishing swamplands surrounding the city of New Orleans. You are able to get a first-hand look at the vast amount of cypress trees and curving waterways. Get an up-close look at all the different wildlife these great swamps have to offer, such as a variety of bird species from hawks to bald eagles, wild white-tailed deer and much more. As one of New Orleans’ many grand attractions, we can’t and won’t disappoint. Our high-speed airboats are like no others near New Orleans; we can accommodate up to 27 passengers at any time.
There isn’t a bad time of year to book a New Orleans Airboat Swamp Tour, but popular times are April, late October and early November. Winter can be a great time because in the summer, seasonal grass gets as high as six feet tall! However, it is only inches high during the winter. This allows you to 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. You can even get a chance to see more deer, and the migratory birds such as waterfowl and bald eagles, which will have arrived by then.
Airboat Adventures is located less than 30 minutes from the French Quarter and we 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 Louisiana swamp tours. We have several Louisiana airboat tours leaving daily, so choose the time that is best for you and prepare for some real excitement. Just call our friendly staff and they can accommodate any size party.
