Why We Have Swamp Tours During The Day

March 18, 2019

Louisiana holds nearly 50% of the south’s wetlands. Because of this, it’s become one of the state’s must-see attractions! At Airboat Adventures, we’re honored to navigate and see these sights every day. After traversing the swamps for as long as we have, we know the ins and outs of the place. But only when the sun is up. You’ll probably wonder why we won’t hold nightly tours if we know the place so well. Well, we feel that we don’t have tours at night because we know the swamp so well!

There’s a handful of reasons why we only hold swamp tours during the day. We’d like to key you in on them. Swamp tours should be exciting and memorable.

Nothing To See Here, Folks

If you’ve looked into our scheduled swamp tours, you’ll notice that our 4 and 6 o’clock tour times are strictly seasonal. These times are only in the summer because the sunlight lasts until right around 7:30 p.m. as opposed to 5 p.m. in the winter. Which not only provides better views but better tours!

Besides the unique fauna that our swamps provide, our visitors also come to see our gators! However, our resident reptiles hunt for their food during the evening hours. Even with the dark cover of night, they will not come above the water unless they catch something.

Our other wildlife are either sleeping or hiding in the dark and nothing can be seen in the waters. Not even with a flashlight. It doesn’t make for much of a tour. So even if we wanted to have nightly swamp tours, we don’t out of courtesy! Louisiana’s swamps and marshland deserved to be looked at. The sunlight provides a better tour, with friendly creatures and sights you can see properly.

Other Nightly NOLA Options

If you were really looking forward to a nightly tour in NOLA, don’t fret! The Crescent City isn’t just famous for our magnificent swamps, but also our haunted past. So if you’re looking for a nightly thrill, why not look for a ghost tour? New Orleans offers more than you’d think.
