Tour the Louisiana Swamp Near New Orleans

July 30, 2014

Have you been mesmerized by beautiful photos of hanging moss, serene swamplands and graceful water birds of the deep south? You have the opportunity to see all of this and more with a one-of-a-kind Louisiana Swamp Tour from Airboat Adventures. Just 30 miles away from New Orleans and with pick-up and drop-off services from most hotels conveniently located near other New Orleans attractions, these tours are offered seven days a week and at least three times per day. Louisiana Swamp Tours provide a safe, entertaining venue to experience the flora and fauna native to the swamps of Louisiana: bald cypress trees, alligators, and is guided by an experienced pilot certified by the United States Coast Guard. The tours are taken on airboats – long, shallow-bottomed vessels propelled by giant fans, which are protected by large steel cages. The airboats’ shallow bottoms allow for easier travel through more shallow sections of swamp that other motors often cannot navigate. An authentic element of New Orleans attractions and the best way to get an authentic Louisiana Swamp Tour experience, airboats have been used for more than 80 years to ferry people through swamps. Airboats are available to accommodate parties of various sizes. Smaller parties can use boats that will handle six to eight passengers for smaller parties, while larger groups may request airboats to accommodate between fifteen to twenty-seven passengers.

The Louisiana Swamp Tour typically lasts between an hour and 45 minutes to two hours, allowing passengers time to enjoy all the landscape and wildlife the swamps have to offer. If you’d like to see white-tailed deer, raccoon, and nutria on your tour in addition to typical Louisiana swamp inhabitants, ask about a later tour when you call Airboat Adventures to schedule. These animals generally come out at night simply to escape the Louisiana heat. With a small additional fee, evening, sunset, longer or shorter tours are also available upon request. Call Airboat Adventures today at 504-689-2005 or toll free at 1-888-467-9267 for information about your Louisiana swamp tour, including prices, reservations, tour times and pickups. Whether you’re a visitor to south Louisiana or you’ve lived in the area for years, it’s well worth the time to include the real Cajun experience of the Louisiana Swamp Tour in your list of New Orleans attractions to experience.
