Unbeatable Swamp Views

If you think that you have a pretty backyard, you should see ours. We sit on 20,000 acres of tidewater cypress swamp that is home to an eclectic group of plant and animal species. You may just be expecting to see a few alligators on your swamp tour, right? That is most certainly not true. Our swamp rides give customers the chance to see snakes, turtles, egrets, herons, racoons, hawks, bald eagles, ibis, and more! Whatever kind of creature likes the swamp, you can hope to see it on our swamp rides. Not to mention, our swamp has some of the largest alligators around town! You can see alligators up to seventeen feet! There is nothing better than experiencing the creatures that are so near and dear to Louisiana swamps with your friends and family.

One-Of-A-Kind Guides for Swamp Rides

We get this question a lot – “Who are our swamp guides?”. When people ask us, it almost sounds like “So who are we trusting our lives with while getting up close and personal with seventeen-foot alligators?”. We always tell our customers that you shouldn’t have a worry in the world when it comes to your swamp guide, because you could honestly not be in better hands. Your one-of-a-kind swamp ride guides are cajun boys at heart and by birth, with a love of all things outdoors. They each have a deep appreciation and knowledge of Louisiana’s unique environment and will be able to answer any and all questions you have. All of our swamp guides are certified by the U.S. Coast Guard and are qualified to make sure you have the best time of your life!

New Orleans Swamp Tours in the Summer

June 1, 2018

We get a lot of interest in New Orleans swamp tours during the summer months. This is natural, as there are more tourists in New Orleans during this period due to summer vacations and the like. However, many people have questions too. Here are a few that we regularly get in summer months.

Popular Questions: Summer Swamp Tours

Is it too warm?

No. Remember, you won’t just be sitting in the exposed sun. You’ll be riding on a high-powered, high-speed, fan-powered, boat. That creates a lot of air movement. Combine that will the water and the shade you’ll occasionally go under, and it won’t be too warm. Yes, you’re in a swamp, so you should expect some heat. You’ll want a shower afterward. But, it’s a great time and the summer is still a great time for this tour.

Will the alligators be out?

Absolutely! Alligators are cold-blooded, but they do not mind the heat. In fact, they seem to enjoy it. You can often see them on our tours basking just outside the water in the sun. You’ll see plenty of alligators during the summer swamp tours with Airboat Adventures.

What should I wear?

New Orleans Swamp Tours can be a real mystery to many people before they go on one. They know to expect adventure, but they’re not sure what kind! In the summer, we suggest you dress light. A bathing suit and t-shirt would be a good idea for men, and shorts and a light top would be ideal for women. Something that will dry quickly, because we are on the water after all.

What should I bring?

Great question! You should bring bug spray, you should hydrate before you attend, and you should bring a camera. Those are steps everyone seems to forget. You’re going to see some sights, so a camera is absolutely necessary in order to capture those moments.

Booking New Orleans Swamp Tours

If you want to go on a tour, you should book as soon as possible. Don’t wait until you’re about to leave for the tour to try to secure a spot, as we run (and we’re not trying to gloat here) a pretty busy operation that is well liked and well attended. So don’t wait, book now!
