January 7, 2013

Airboat Adventures is a great company that offers not only education but also excitement. They do swamp tours which allow passengers to get on an amazing airboat and travel through Louisiana swampland to get an up close and personal view of the wildlife and ecosystem that you just can’t get in the city.

But fear not, you don’t have to travel out to the “boonies” to get a glimpse, they are located just thirty minutes outside of the French Quarter! Easy access from your downtown hotel is made even better by Airboat Adventures’ offer to pick you up with their shuttle service to most French Quarter hotels!

These tours are great for tourists and natives alike and with the city buzzing from all the activity recently and to come, it’s a great excuse to take a quick trip and see something you won’t get in the “city”. It’s January and in the Big Easy and we are picking up from Christmas and rolling out preparations for Carnival and our hosting of the SUPERBOWL!

This city is going to be virtually exploding with people from far and wide to celebrate. It’s a perfect opportunity to plan an unexpected trip to Louisiana’s nature side and free yourself from taxis and bar rooms. These tours are approximately between one hour and forty five minutes and two hours. They are full of great information and live action from opportunities to hold baby alligators to watching live feedings. And they can accommodate almost any party, so don’t be scared if you think your group is too large. Get online and check out their different packages and boat sizes! These tours are great for family groups and even corporate events.

Airboat Adventures offers a great service to all those willing to take a walk, or boat ride, on the wild side! And if you’re already planning a trip to New Orleans for any of the city’s big upcoming events, get online and check out pictures, videos, and commentary to see if these tours are something you’d be interested in. Call or email and set up your tour today, don’t forget about the shuttle service in case you don’t want to take a taxi! This city always has something going on, but a lot of those events come and go, you can always rely on Airboat Adventures to set you up on a boat, and take you on a ride you’ll never forget.

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.

The Alligator…..

October 19, 2012

Airboat Adventures is a swamp tour company in Lafitte, Louisiana. They’re about thirty minutes outside of New Orleans and offer swamp tours exploring swamp life. Each tour is approximately an hour and a half to two hours and exposes tourists to exciting opportunities and unique experiences. One of the fiercest predators on the tour is the mighty alligator which are found in the Southeast United States in all of Florida and Louisiana. This mighty animal has a ferocious bite and can hide beneath the water just waiting to strike on unsuspecting prey.

The American Alligator in Louisiana

These animals can be huge, the average American alligator’s adult length and height are thirteen feet long and eight hundred pounds respectively. The largest American alligator was found in Louisiana and measures over nineteen feet in length. There is no average lifespan for an alligator, in 1937 a one year old alligator was brought to a zoo in Serbia from Germany and it is now 76 years old. Go on one of these tours and take a chance to see a creature that is older than you are! The American alligators have the most powerful bite force ever measured, snapping their jaws with a massive force of up to 2,125 pounds, which equivalent to a mid-size sedan falling on top of you.

Alligators & Their Environments

Alligators live in freshwater environments, such as ponds, marshes, wetlands, river, lakes, and swamps. Down here we have plenty of those environments, and these areas are among those featured in Airboat Adventures swamp tours. The foods eaten by alligators depend on their age and size. When young, they can eat fish and insects, and as they mature progressively larger prey is taken including various mammals. The mating season of these animals is in late spring, and females build the nests in summer. The sex of the clutch is determined by the temperature of the nest. On an Airboat Adventures alligator tour in New Orleans, you will see alligators fed and interacted with by the guides.

See Them Up Close On An Alligator Tour in New Orleans

These amazing creatures are both to be respected and feared especially in their natural habitat. Airboat Adventures offers you an up close and personal look at these creatures and what they’re capable of on an alligator tour in New Orleans. It’s been said sometimes you have the opportunity to hold babies! Alligators have a rich history, and information is definitely a part of these tours as well.

Sports Time

We all love football in the city of New Orleans. Some of us live our entire lives around Saints football. This season isn’t going quite the way we planned, which is why we have backup plans! I know tourists and natives alike flock to the French Quarter for the bar scene and sports parties but what happens when the games are late, or over early? Airboat Adventures is roughly thirty minutes outside of the French Quarter and offer a great escape from the hustle of the city party life. They offer swamp tours which is especially great if you enjoy outdoors and learning something new every day.

Plan your pre-sports get together with Airboat Adventures and see what they have to offer. They are willing to pick you up within the French Quarter so you don’t even have to drive yourself. While you’re on the boat you can call Oceana Grill and plan an after party with great drinks and food. There’s so much to do in the city and Airboat Adventures seeks to amaze you with an environment that’s a little simpler.

On many levels this ecosystem is more dangerous, but the confusion of traffic and businesses are absent on these waters where alligators and other predators reign. They offer a full schedule of tours times throughout the day and special schedules are available. Airboat Adventures has different size boats to accommodate all types of groups. Just you and your friends? They got it! Family reunion? They got it!

Take a Swamp Tour and See Some Wildlife Sporting

September 28, 2012

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 turns football into an exciting party that all can enjoy and the natives are always open to welcoming rivals and supporters alike.

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 swamp tours about 30 minutes outside of downtown New Orleans. These tours are not only beautiful but educational 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.

Airboat Adventures – September Incentives

September 18, 2012

Airboat Adventures offers excellent airboat tours of swamp lands in Louisiana. Located just about thirty minutes outside of the downtown area of New Orleans, it’s a great way to escape the city and experience something few have the guts for! Real alligators and other vibrant wildlife live in these swamps and you can some as close as you’d probably be comfortable on a guided tour from Airboat Adventures. September poses as a great month to take a tour for various reasons, so call and schedule your tour now!

September is a great month for tours because the air temperatures begin to drop just a little, but the water is still warm and alive with alligators. And with ‘gators still plentiful at this time in the season, the chances of tour groups catching some really big ones are inevitable! September does fall into hunting season for alligators, but Airboat Adventures isn’t hunting on their property, thus further increasing your chances of gator sightings.

Don’t forget, alligators aren’t all that is to be seen on this rugged landscape, it’s also nesting season for most bird wildlife on the swamp. This greatly affects the number of birds you can see on the swamp. Also, in the Cypress swamp, most of the trees don’t lose much in the way of Fall, so it mostly looks like Springtime with trees in full bloom.

Airboat Adventures is also featuring a new attraction: an outdoor tank exhibit. This tank features alligators, alligator box turtles, and other turtles. Just another way for tourists and natives alike to get up close and personal with how some of the animals in the swamp live their lives.

Airboat Adventures always takes groups looking for an activity to share with all, groups from 6-8 all the way to 16-18 are welcome. Tour times vary based on season and are also sometimes available upon appointment. Don’t forget they do hotel pickups for those located in the downtown New Orleans area. You can also find them on Facebook and read great testimonials on their website from other satisfied tour takers!

Call today or come on by and see the indoor exhibit featuring three green gators and two beautiful albino alligators Sugar and Flour! Safety is Airboat Adventures number one concern; children under five and women who are pregnant are not allowed to tour.
