Tour the Louisiana Bayou at Airboat Adventures!

December 30, 2014

Everyone who’s anyone knows that Louisiana is a great place for almost any occasion. There are shops and bars as well as soul-food filled restaurants, nightclubs, and a rowdy population that would make any visitor brim with excitement for most people. But the hustle and bustle of the city isn’t always for everyone. The rowdy crowds, the slow traffic, and not to mention the crazy nightlife are New Orleans attractions that can be overwhelming for those who aren’t used to it or simply for those who like an easy, breezy day out. Though shopping and eating are wonderful, there’s nothing quite like having an educational trip around the southern parts of Louisiana. Like a tour. Well thankfully for you visitors or residents of New Orleans, Airboat Adventures has their Louisiana Bayou swamp tours just waiting for your company!

Wildlife and Wonderment

Airboat Adventures’ Louisiana bayou tours come in a variety of packages for you to choose from. Their friendly staff can accommodate with any amount of friends or family you plan to bring. Airboat Adventures have several Louisiana bayou tours leaving daily so you can simply choose a time that is best for you and/or your party and prepare for some real excitement and education. Airboat Adventure’s Louisiana Bayou tours are approximately one hour and forty five minutes to two whole hours jam-packed with nature as well as wildlife. You can have the opportunity to see alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets, herons, and sometimes ibis up close and personal with their educated staff. If you’re especially lucky, you may get to also see hawks, owls, or the bald eagle every American loves and adores. You can also see white tailed deer, nutria, raccoons, and other mammals, though those animals are mainly nocturnal in the heat of the summer months. And though you will see a lot of beautiful animals, you also won’t have to worry about seeing those animals you don’t want, like mosquitoes. Using insect repellant about once a year, Airboat Adventures will tell you that it seems like the whirligigs, dragonflies, and other predaceous insects do a great job of keeping the mosquito population down. The tour guides on the Louisiana Bayou Tours are like most Louisiana boys, each of them beginning to hunt and fish at an early age, and developing a deep love and appreciation of the Louisiana unique environment. In fact, all of the Airboat Adventure Louisiana Bayou tour guides are expert airboat captains certified by the U.S. Coast Guard.
