A Swamp Tour is a New Orleans MUST!

February 20, 2013

Coming to New Orleans everyone knows about the French Quarter, everyone knows about the parties, and everyone knows about Mardi Gras. Let’s talk about some lesser known gems so you can get to know something about New Orleans you may have not heard of.

About thirty minutes from the French Quarter lives Airboat Adventures, which offers tours through the south Louisiana bayous and swamps. You may not get tipsy, the only music you’ll hear may be the engine of the boat, but you will get to see a side of New Orleans reserved for the unsung warriors of the city. The swamp life is definitely a different type of battle, it isn’t your normal hustle, and taking a tour with Airboat Adventures can give a unique perspective of what it’s like to live on the swamp both human and otherwise.

The Swamps here in Louisiana are a world all of their own, a true piece of nature. In the swamp you definitely want to keep your hands inside the boat at all times! Coming to Airboat Adventures you’ll be touring 20,000 acres of cypress swamp, which is an entire ecosystem supporting a diverse wildlife population, some customers have even reported being able to see and hold in their own hands baby alligators!

The tours are an hour and forty-five minutes to two hours and you’ll get to see this wildlife population: alligators, snakes, turtles, and ibis. On the tour customers have even been lucky enough to see owls, bald eagles, and white-tailed deer. It’s a completely different scene than beer and sports, you won’t catch any Saints or Tigers on the swamp, but you’ll be able to witness the struggle of nature and when you’re done, you can tally the score.

Tours can accommodate various sized parties, six to eight passengers up to sixteen to eighteen passengers, and with tours given seven days a week and a flexible schedule, there’s no excuse not to call.

Louisiana Swamp Tours

January 31, 2013

People travel far and wide for New Orleans football. We host the New Orleans Saints, proud winners of the Superbowl in 2009 and are humbled that the boys call this city home. New Orleans will host the 2013 Superbowl! But if you’re from out of town and you’re looking for something fun to do either before or after the game Airboat Adventures has a trip for you. They are a company that offers Louisiana swamp tours about 30 minutes outside of downtown New Orleans. These tours are not only scenic but full of information and there’s a ton to learn. Safety is a major concern as all of their captains are certified to take the best care of you and those you may bring with you.

On these tours you won’t just see alligators, but you have an opportunity to touch baby alligators and really understand these animals. And if you’re in town in a hotel, Airboat Adventures offers hotel pick-ups from the downtown New Orleans area, and is more than willing to give you all the details and help schedule your tour, just call toll free 1-888-467-9267. We all know football is a staple in most American homes, and New Orleans is no exception to this rule. But these tours are a nice break from the bar room or the couch at home. You may not see any rams or cowboys on these tours, but the exotic wildlife that exists in Louisiana swamplands is definitely worth not only experiencing, but respecting as well.

You come to New Orleans to see a Saints game, and then you have an opportunity to see another intense side of the state on these Louisiana swamp tours. Sending someone as a gift? No worries, plan their trip ahead of time as gift certificates are available. These tours offer an intense image of the swampland and how dangerous it can be in nature. Airboat Adventures offers you a controlled exposure to this danger and gives its guests an up close and personal experience that that television just doesn’t offer. Airboat Adventures is open seven days a week and is always hoping you’ll make that decision to come on down and step onto one of their boats and let yourself go. Don’t forget to call, you won’t want to miss out on this experience!

Wildlife Other than Mardi Gras

January 25, 2013

Coming to New Orleans for the Superbowl and the tail end of the beautiful weather? You have to visit Airboat Adventures where they have the best swamp tours around. Best tours, best services, and best excitement anywhere are to be had at Airboat Adventures. Being just thirty minutes outside of the French Quarter they are just a hop, skip, and a jump away from all the craziness of the city. These tours aren’t just scenic, they’re full of great facts and their employees enjoy being the ones to spread the lore of the land. If you want a break from the noise of the city, take a swamp tour and experience the serenity and wildlife of the swamp.

New Orleans isn’t boring by any stretch of the imagination but these swamp tours aren’t an everyday thing. You come to New Orleans and while there’s so much to do between bars, restaurants, and clubs you can get a good feel for what to expect. When getting into an airboat to see the swamp you never know what to expect, are you going to see an alligator hunt down a meal or will you see an eagle flying overhead? These tours are a great family time and you should call or go online to schedule your tour today.

These tours take place on a high speed airboat across 20,000 acres of tidewater cypress swamp. This cypress swamp is home to a huge ecosystem of many types of aquatic and moist-soil vegetation, and a large wildlife population. The tours Airboat Adventures offers are typically up to two hours in which you’ll have the opportunity to see alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets, herons and ibis, and occasionally hawks, owls, and bald eagles. Customers have even reported having their guides get baby alligators to let people hold them! Safety is their number one concern and they take all necessary precautions so that no one gets hurt or is ever in danger.

These forms of wildlife aren’t anything you’ll see in the city. It is an opportunity to take a break from a bar stool and see the real wild side of New Orleans. You won’t see any alligators roaming down Bourbon St., and if you take the tour you get to ride on an airboat, which at high speeds has to feel good in the sun. Airboat Adventures offers a great family oriented tour that your kids are sure to love.
