When is the Best Time to See Alligators in New Orleans?

Now that you already know that Airboat Adventures is the best place to see alligators in New Orleans, you may be wondering when you should come visit. To this, we say that it really depends. Our fan boats leave at 9:45 AM, 12 PM, 2 PM, 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM. If you are wanting some scenic skies to your scenic views, the best time to take a tour would be our earliest and latest departures. These tours are ideal for photography. In terms of seasonality, our winter and early spring tours offer pleasant weather that is an escape from the typical Louisiana humidity. Like us, the gators love some good ol’ vitamin D. In late spring and summer, you’ll see the gators catching some rays on logs.  You really can’t go wrong when it comes to a swamp tour with Airboat Adventures!
