Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, refers to a series of eccentric Carnival celebrations that involve decadent parades, music, food, drink, and entertainment. While Mardi Gras may only be one day technically, the festivities that surround this holiday last for weeks. It is no wonder that Mardi Gras draws people from all over the world to the diverse city of New Orleans. Mardi Gras celebrations are exciting and wild, and can become overwhelming at times, especially for families with kids.

The perfect activity for families, parties, and people of all ages, a swamp tour through Louisiana’s beautiful wetlands is a great way to spend a beautiful spring day.

Experience the Serene Tranquility of the Swamp

When you need a break from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans this carnival season, an airboat ride through southern Louisiana’s swamps is for you. Instead of pushing through crowds of people and dodging beads and other objects being thrown at you, you will be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy a breezy ride through nature’s landscape. Our unique swap tours will take you through 20,000 acres of tidewater cypress swamp, where you will have the chance to see wildlife like you’ve never see it before. This particular region of Louisiana is home to a diverse population of wildlife and plants, including aquatic and moist-soil vegetation. While on our swamp tour, you will will be gliding through some of the most jaw-dropping scenery in the world, brushing past lush vegetation and cruising beneath copious canopies of dripping Spanish moss. You will have the chance to see a variety of exotic animals while on the tour, including alligators, snakes, egrets, herons, ibis, turtles, hawks, bald eagles, owls, and more.

What Will We Experiencefield trip for kids in swamp, new orleans

While on a swamp tour, visitors will have the chance to immerse themselves in the nature of the Louisiana wetlands. Contrary to what some may believe, swamps tours are enjoyable throughout the entire calendar year, regardless of temperatures. With this in mind, if your child’s school does not go on a field trip to Airboat Adventures, a swamp tour is the perfect summer break experience that will not only be fun, but educational! Although enjoyable throughout the year, the most popular times are April, late October, and early November. Alligators can be seen throughout the whole year, but guests have the best opportunities to see gators when the temperatures are above 70 degrees and a bit warmer. The guides on tours at Airboat Adventures are Louisiana born and bred and have been exploring the windy waterways since they were kids. With this experience in mind, they can help answer almost any questions that parents and kids alike may have. Furthermore, each of the guides has been certified by the U.S Coast Guard to ensure a safe experience as well as a fun one.

A Little Lagniappe

Although some worry about mosquitoes on swamp tours, this is rarely an issue. Whirliwigs and dragonflies do a good job of keeping the mosquito population down and while moving in the fan-boat, mosquitoes can’t keep up. Our boats come in 2 sizes; small and large. The small boats can accommodate 6-8 passengers while the large boats can hold 15-27 passengers. For those staying in New Orleans that wish to go on a swamp tour, they may utilize the hotel pickup features which is offered in packages for both small and large boats.
