We are entering the season of winter here in New Orleans and that makes for perfect conditions to get outside and be a part of something. Airboat Adventures has excellent swamp tours that take you on an airboat swamp ride that will not only show you beautiful sites, but will teach you something too. Wintertime and early spring can call for temperatures from 30 degrees to 75 degrees. Average temperatures at this time of year range from 60 to 65 degrees which makes swamp tours at this time of the year really nice.
If you’re wondering what the best time of day to tour is, Airboat Adventures will never tell you that there is a bad time to tour but instead will tell you to look at their schedule and pick a time that works best for you. Boats depart at 9:45 am, 12:00 pm, and 2:00pm. Seasonally, the boats can be scheduled for 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. They recommend if you want to see the swamp at its prettiest that you get the early morning or early evening tours. The light at these times have warmer tones and you don’t have the severity of blazing sunlight which also makes these tour times better for photography.
Sometimes if the temperatures jump a little in the midday you can catch alligators sunbathing on logs and it is a sight to see. Photography can be a big part of the tours! Especially around the time of the year, you can take your camera out and take pictures of you and your family and make you New Orleans Swamp Life Christmas cards. The guides are all certified boat captains and safety is always their number one concern.
Don’t forget if you’re traveling to New Orleans that Airboat Adventures will pick you up from your French Quarter hotel. They’re only about 30 minutes outside of the French Quarter and these swamp tours are a great way to escape the city. These tours can also make a great surprise or gift for the upcoming holiday season just call and book your tour today. Don’t forget if you do need to be picked up that pick up times are roughly one hour ahead of your tour time so keep that in mind when scheduling your tour.
