Airboat Rides Make For An Authentic Experience

April 8, 2019

New Orleans is one of the most unique cities in the United States. As the birthplace of jazz, the best city for Mardi Gras, and the home to tons of swampland, it’s hard to find anywhere like the Crescent City. Naturally, we have tons of tourists year-round to see all we have to offer. Many of these visitors would also love an “authentic Cajun experience.” But what does that really entail? To find some authenticity—and some fun!—look into an airboat ride with Airboat Adventures.

Airboat Rides For The Whole Family

No matter how many people you bring, we have enough space for the whole family. At Airboat Adventures, we offer two different boat sizes:

  • Our smaller airboat fits up to 10 people. This boat choice provides a faster boat and a more intimate tour experience. This tour is $89 per person with an additional $30 for optional hotel transportation.
  • Our larger boat is for bigger families and groups, sitting up to 30 people at a time. This tour is $59 per person. Our optional hotel roundtrip remains $30 for those staying in New Orleans.

Each tour lasts an hour and 45 minutes. This is to give you plenty of time to take in all the sights and sounds of the swamp.

Additionally, children must be over the age of 5 to be able to ride on the airboat. We understand your disappointment, but this is for their safety. Once they’ve grown in a few years, we’ll be sure to welcome them with open arms!

Summer Seasonals

At Airboat Adventures, we have three tour times that are the same year-round: 9:45, 12, and 2. However, once the water begins to warm up in the summer sun, we offer two more tour times at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. We offer these additional times for more reasons than you’d think. The first is because the summer brings more sunlight to navigate the swamp safely. The second reason is the summer months are some of the best to visit!

As the swamplands warm up in the summer sun, more and more flora and fauna become active during the day. Especially our most famous resident reptiles: the alligators!
