The Real Louisiana Wildlife Tour

September 30, 2014

There are many different ways to experience Louisiana’s rich culture and history. Often times, people travel down south to New Orleans to visit the various historical sites right there in the city. Some people choose to take tours, but they may not do it right. Don’t tour Louisiana the wrong way by following a tour guide around the city, not able to understand their fast-talking! Don’t be unsatisfied by how quick the tour ends, not allowing you to fully dwell and appreciate all the sites you’ve seen and the new information you’ve been enlightened with! Take a real tour of Louisiana that’s fun and incredibly entertaining for you and whoever you wish to bring along! Do this by embarking on a Louisiana wildlife tour with Airboat Adventures!

Instead of walking around all day trying to keep up with the busy crowds of New Orleans, a high-speed Airboat Tour could be just what you need to spice things up! It’s a fun and different way of experiencing the other parts of Louisiana that people aren’t used to seeing. The swamps and wildlife are a huge part of the culture and history of the state that isn’t often recognized or acknowledged. Plus, you can take one of these tours at almost any time of the day! So when it’s a nice and sunny day in Louisiana, feel free to take a tour in the morning, afternoon, or even at sunset! The beautiful water and scenery will be a site that you won’t be able to forget at that time of day!

New Orleans Swamp Tours

September 15, 2014

Louisiana has a unique landscape. A landscape as beautiful as it is inaccessible. The backwaters push into through tufts of sedge grass. The knees of the great cypress trees rise from the water picketing the barrier into the ancient swamps. Reptilian guardians as old as dinosaurs glide between the water woods to surface seldom as sentry to their old kingdom. As one of the last ecosystems to feel the full weight of human habitation, the wetlands of Louisiana host a vibrant breadth of life. Within only 30 minutes of New Orleans, Airboat Adventures is hosting swamp tours into these rich water ways, bringing the wonder of the marshes to visitors and natives alike.

New Orleans’ Culture Birthed from the Water

Tourists flock year round to the Crescent City. The exuberant festivals of the fall and winter mock the bounty of the warmer seasons. The fish, crab, crayfish, and oysters pulled from the swamps, gulf, and brackish waters grant a rich substance for world renowned chefs. The port of New Orleans supplies the rare spices and flavors creole, French, Spanish, Eastern European, Native American and West African traditions have blended into the gumbo pot of our rich pallet. But whether as a source of food or a means of transportation, the water surrounding the city has played a vital role in shaping every aspect of its unique culture. You can catch sight of this unique landscape through our custom made swamp tours.

You will catch sights of the beautiful birds of the wetlands, the egrets and ibis, brown pelicans and hawks. The nocturnal mammals that taught New Orleanians how to live the night life, the opossum, raccoon, and nutria, are sometimes caught hiding from the heat in the shade of the cypress trees. The ill-tempered alligators flash their razor backs at the airboats in warning of their solemn habitat. And the Airboats of our swamp tours can bring you to this unique sanctuary with only a thirty minute drive outside the French Quarter of New Orleans.

Swamp Tours Leaving Daily

Airboat Adventures offers tours multiple times a day. With tours normally lasting around two hours, and with multiple boats to choose from, we have time slots from morning to evening. If you would rather be back in town for an evening of Jazz and Hurricanes at the Famous Pat O’s, a round trip from your hotel and back could only take three hours after lunch. If you would like to make an evening with the family you will never forget, sunset tours are available upon request. We cater to the diverse groups traveling through New Orleans by offering different sized boats for all our swamp tours. For those families out on holiday, we have six- to eight-passenger boats that bring the action right up to the side of the vessel and fit a full family with a little room to spare. If you’re traveling with work or friends we have fifteen- to twenty-seven- seat boats so big groups can all experience the majesty of the swamps together.

Remember to bring your cameras. The wildlife is teeming with movement and there is just too much to remember. Grab some shots for your home that will have visitors asking questions for years.
