Superbowl, Mardi Gras, Swamp Tour!

December 14, 2012

The city of New Orleans is going to be quite busy the next couple of months. Right around the corner is Christmas, and on the next block to follow comes the Superbowl and Mardi Gras. What makes the Superbowl special this year is that it is IN New Orleans! Many people will come from all over the country to be a part of this celebration of sporting elite. With so many different people, from so many different ways of life come together it can get kind of crowded.

I offer you a slower, less crowded, and equally wondrous way to experience a slice of New Orleans that is better than not being able to walk down Bourbon St. or catching a game in a great pub you heard about. Airboat Adventures is a swamp tour company that gives tours through beautiful Cypress Swampland that will impress any eye.

There won’t be any Hand Grenades sold, or any half-dressed women trying to entice you into entering their club, but there is wildlife and a primitive excitement that will move your core. Airboat Adventures offers you an inside look into nature’s food chain and takes you through it step by step. Out in the swampland humans have to fight to be number one as one false step, one missed shot, or any mistake can cost you your life. It is dangerous land that natives of the area have learned to live on and thrive for.

The tour can fit between six and twenty seven passengers depending on the size of boat you choose and will last between one and a half to two hours. The tour is safe and is guided by experienced and licensed boat captains who will bring you through the lens and give you a true taste of the swamp you won’t get on television. These captains will educate you on how the ecosystem exists, how it has thrived, and most of all you will learn that the animals in the swamp are to be respected.

It takes a wild interest and courage to brave these waters, and I recommend you let Airboat Adventures lend you some and take your hand as they show you a whole new world that downtown New Orleans doesn’t have to offer. They do tours all day long, are only thirty minutes outside of the French Quarter and are willing to pick you up from your hotel. It is definitely an opportunity not to be missed and you should get online or call now to get more information and make your plans. Happy Holidays to you and yours and best wishes from Airboat Adventures.
