Riding in an Airboat Excursion

December 23, 2013

Gator ToursBeing able to ride in an airboat can be a fun and an exciting way to start up any vacation you have planned for you and your family. This can be a unique adventure that everyone will love and remember for the rest of their lives.

Traveling to the South means that you will have the chance to spot various creatures that live and breathe down in the humid southern sun. One of the best ways to seek out these animals is through an airboat journey. This excursion will take you through the swampy muddy waters where you can point out several of these fantastic and interesting creatures. They live deep down within the waters and the only way to capture great snapshots of them is through a speedy ride. This rare-looking wildlife will be happy to see you visiting and may try to creep up to the boat and welcome you into their territory. There is nothing to be afraid of or alarmed about. Your tour guide will be experienced and will give you the best information possible about these animals while you keep at a safe distance from them.

This boating adventure will be one like you have never had before. You can comfortably sit on the boat with several other tourists while you zip through the marshy waters. Most boats hold several people at once and can make a great getaway boat in a hurry. Your tour guide will be happy to answer any questions that you might have regarding the areas you are visiting, the animals, and the eerie feel of the swamp. Make sure you take your camera so that you can take plenty of snapshots of the critters that you may never see again. Many are only found in the vast swamps, so take the time to snap several photos and plan to make a book or art piece out of them for a memorable collage or treasure. Speeding through muddy waters may not sound like a great way to spend your vacation, but in reality, it will be one of the most unique and charming ways to take fabulous pictures and get to know a different region of the states.

If you will be vacationing in the southern states, eat great food, take several pictures, and ride in an airboat from Airboat Adventures so that you can sight see and get to know some of the rare swamp creatures out in the world.

Top Five Things to See on a New Orleans Tour

December 12, 2013

Are you visiting the Big Easy? Make sure you schedule a New Orleans tour of the city with a tour guide who knows the best sites and landmarks. The tour guides at Airboat Adventures recommend doing a combination of “land” and “water” tours so you can see the city from every angle. Here is our top five list of things you have to see on the land and in the swamp.

Historical Landmarks

Come See Alligators in New OrleansMany people who come to New Orleans are content to spend the day touring historical sites around the city. In Louisiana, you will find plenty of history. Some popular sites include the famous St. Louis cemeteries, or “cities of the dead.” You can see the grave markers for several historical figures and enjoy the haunting, beautiful surroundings. You cannot visit New Orleans without touring the French Quarter, taking in the architecture, the smells, the food, and the sounds of jazz.

Delicious Food

Another famous thing to love about the south is the unique, spicy, and mouth-watering food. If you have never tried Cajun or Creole food before, you cannot pass the opportunity in New Orleans. The French Quarter is a great place to find authentic Louisiana-style food. Try a few classics like gumbo, jambalaya, and pecan pie.

Exciting Music

When you think of New Orleans, do you think of lively Bourbon street jazz? When you take a tour through New Orleans, pay attention to the places your guide points out as hot spots for music. You can usually find at least one music festival to attend during your stay as well as plenty of music clubs where you eat, drink, and dance to New Orleans jazz all night long.

Lush Countryside

At Airboat Adventures, we believe no trip to Louisiana would be complete without an “off-land” tour of the Louisiana swamps and bayous. Our guides can even pick you up from your hotel and take you directly to the airboat launch site. Spend a couple of hours on our comfortable airboat and you will see a completely different side of the country. The swamp is a beautiful and unique place. It is the perfect family tour, with plenty of adventurous memories to make. Take your camera and you can capture the picturesque landscapes and the native wildlife.

Reptiles and Birds

Your airboat tour would not be complete without alligators! Be prepared to see plenty of gators, snakes, turtles, herons, egrets, hawks, and many other creatures in the wild. You can keep your distance and take pictures, or you can ask your tour guide to hold a baby gator for a New Orleans tour that is truly unforgettable.
