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!
