Get Outdoors With A New Orleans Swamp Tour

July 18, 2017

South Louisiana is one of the most beautiful places to live, but the area is also best known for some of the most exciting vacations in the country! Almost everywhere you look there is a new story to learn – whether it’s an historic site dating back to the early days of America or a 1500 year-old oak tree, beautiful scenery is all around us. Not only do we have beautiful outdoors to offer, we also have all types of wildlife and a sportsman’s paradise right in our own backyard! In Louisiana, one of our favorite ways to get outside and see the area is on an airboat during a swamp tour. If you are in search of a New Orleans swamp tour, Airboat Adventures is your answer.

Weekend Trip to Louisiana’s Backyard

New Orleans is one of the cultural centers of not only Louisiana, but also the country! On a weekend trip to the city, you can find the most delicious food, vibrant streets, talented artists, and jazz on every corner. But what better way to immerse yourself in the culture than to see first hand the world-renowned mossy oaks and lush swamps in our own backyard. Airboat Adventures has you covered with a first-hand look into this world and you’d better have your camera packed with you! Be sure to take photos of all the wildlife, oaks, cypress knees, and even with your tour guide!

But What Is An Airboat?

If you’re visiting South Louisiana for the first time, you may be unfamiliar with the makeup of an airboat. An airboat is a flat-bottomed boat powered by a fan the size of an airplane propeller! We’ll take you through the water or marsh areas where typical boat motors are not allowed. On our airboat swamp tours, you’ll be exploring Louisiana’s swamps finding alligators and other marine life with the whole family!

Swampy Wildlife

Louisiana’s swamps aren’t only home to alligators, you’re also sure to come in contact with some of the following:

  • Birds such as ducks, cranes, bald eagles, spoonbills, and pelicans
  • Mammals such as beavers, nutria, otters, and raccoons
  • Reptiles such as cottonmouth snakes and snapping turtles

Our tour guides will show you how these species interact in one environment, making for one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Many of our guides even have personal stories to tell about their experiences growing up here in South Louisiana near these animals – you’re sure to go home with a glimpse into a whole new culture and we know you’ll love it!
