Tour Louisiana Swamps with Airboat Adventures!

September 20, 2016

Television has placed Louisiana swamps into the limelight in recent years, and for good reason. The swamps are an important part of Louisiana’s culture, and this vital ecosystem is teeming with a variety of wildlife such as alligators, turtles, pelicans, hawks, and many other species. There is no better way to experience the swamp than with Airboat Adventures!

Enjoy a Day in Untouched Nature

Straight from the water, moss-laden cypress trees emerge like sentinels of the swamp to tower over circling reptilian beasts. In their branches, eagles and hawks peer out across the waters at the sinking of an orange sun. Cicadas’ loud calls echo incessantly and frogs answer with deep, guttural croaks. Turtles curiously poke their heads out above the surface of the marsh as snakes slither by leaving them in their wake. Through a tangle of lily pads, among swaths of duckweed, a Wood Duck’s red eye can be discerned alertly peering about. This is the life of the swamp, and it’s waiting for you to discover it. There is no better way to do that than through a tour with Airboat Adventures!

To enjoy your visit with us, we offer both a smaller and a larger size boat to accommodate our different size boats. The small boats are fully equipped to handle groups of 6-8 people while the larger boats can hold anywhere from 15-27 passengers! We love catering to birthday parties, family trips, sports teams, and to anyone else who is looking forward to a nice day of swamp tours in Louisiana. Leading our voyages, we have U.S Coast Guard Certified airboat captains. In addition to their formal training, our guide’s have spent their lives hunting, fishing, and exploring the windy Louisiana waterways to hone their skills. Some of our guides will even swim with the alligators! Our guides love their jobs because they get to do what they like the most in life; spend time out on the water. They are a gregarious bunch who’ll be able to answer all of your questions about your surroundings.
