Airboat Adventures was totally worth the money. Our shuttle driver was on time and super friendly. Was about a 30 min drive from the Garden District. Check in was easy. Our driver Mike was keeping the boat laughing and happy the whole time. Nice country, boat goes fast enough to cool you off but not too fast to get wet. Saw at least 20 gators, and Mike got them to come right up to the boat. He's not afraid, he actually kissed one on the head. Get to see some beautiful canopied swampland, and learn a lot about the local land and wildlife. Would take a friend again.

The swamp tour at Airboat Adventures was beyond amazing! The Airboat experience was one of a kind and the coolest boat ride you could take! Our guide T Earl was the best! He was friendly and humorous! He gave us so much information pertaining to the swamp from the gators and geographic details to the damage from previous hurricanes. With the utmost hospitality, T Earl gave us a wonderful tour and you could really see his passion for the swamp, bayous and his community! This tour is so unique and is a must when visiting New Orleans!!! Thank you for an amazing experience Airboat Adventures!

We had a great time even though it was a rainy day in January. They pick you up and shuttle you to the Bayou and back again (if you select that option). Then a lovely tour of the Bayou. Our guide was a pleasant mix of informative and funny. The air boat ride is a mix of high speed thrills and leisurely meandering through the Bayou. We even got to see an alligator! I highly recommend this tour. My husband and I enjoyed it very much.

Tour guide was phenomenal!! Knowledgeable of what to see and where. Boat ride was also a ton of fun in of itself. The sights and critters in the area was a stunning experience. Would definitely recommend if in the area. In and around New Orleans, this was hands down our best tour we did and we did several.

We absolutely loved the service and the idea. To begin with - the idea is amazing, but the execution was perfect. We requested a ride (pick up and drop off) from a nearby hotel where we stayed and the ride was amazing and with a lot of fun. The boat ride itself was the best highlight from our whole trip to New Orleans. Our guide kept us safe, but at the same time was very funny and informative. He even trained some alligators overtime and showed us the tricks. We recommend this to everyone, best epxerience!

Had a great time cruising the swamp on our airboat tour. Captain was very informative and kept us highly entertained the whole time. Even though it was a rather cool day, we saw several gators, one of which, according to the captain was fairly large. The time went by way too fast as can be expected when you’re having fun. Would definitely go again, and would certainly choose Airboat Adventures next time also. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

My biggest worry was that this would be a tourist trap. At best, I thought the boat ride would be fun. Well, I was wrong!! This blew my expectations out of the water. It ended up being the best part of my trip. I payed a little extra for the smaller airboat and it was totally worth it. The swamp itself is beautiful and you see so many animals in their natural habitat. My favorite part was that you really got a feeling like the company respects the land and the animals that live there. They’re working hard to educate people so that they can keep this habitat protected. Our guide, T. Earl was great. He was funny and knowledgeable. He made the tour an awesome experience. A few things: bring a sweater, sunglasses (mostly for the wind), and wear sunblock!

The ride was absolutely wonderful! Our tour guide was the best. He was very informative and made us feel like we was hanging out with an old friend. When he talked to the gator and she came to the boat so we could get good pictures was just great! I really can't say anything bad and would go on and on about this place. We will be returning!

Ronnie was AWESOME!! You could tell this was his passion. He did an awesome job at informing us but also entertaining us! We saw many alligators, and he gave great demonstrations on how they catch alligators. He made the swamp tour wonderful! My favorite part of the trip! Loved it!

We had an amazing time with Ronnie as our guide! He was very knowledgeable and patient with the entire group. We took our 9 & 15 year old sons on the large air boat and they enjoyed every moment. We drove to the location versus using shuttle transportation. It was an easy drive. Thanks again, Ronnie!

Six of us took a private tour with Captain Jay and it was hands down one of the best tours I’ve ever taken. We saw baby gators and mama gators, big gators, blonde raccoons, and a bald eagle. Jay was not only incredibly knowledgeable but also wonderfully charming. I’m not sure how he did it, but within a few short minutes of being on his boat we started to feel like family. In a good way. Highly recommended.

We are literally on the boat still and We were blessed to have T. Earl as our tour guide. Entertaining ain’t the word! The history lessons we received during the tour was absolutely invaluable. As a travel agent, I always book tours for my clients and this will be my go to tour for them. Awesome awesome tour!

Ronnie our airboat captain was amazing. He brought the tour to life with his experience and flair. He handled what could have been an unpleasant situation with a overbearing guest in such a way that it flipped the narrative and made the already fantastic experience more amusing. He wove in personal experience with facts to bring about a truly knowledgeable and enjoyable trip.

my husband and i took the air boat tour on 01/26/2021.We were supposed to take the tour on the the 25 but had a problem we were going to be late we called and they changed the date for us so glad they did . when we arrived the following day we checked in and were treated very nice. Got on the boat and tour started with captain Ron we were told to put ear muffs on when he was going to speed up we did but the boat did not .Captain RON apologizes brings us back to the dock .We load onto another boat and off again. We are in the lake now and boat #2 decides not to run. But captain Ron apologizes again any way not his fault he starts tour talking about crab fishing history around the lake how to catch alligators and shrimping. The crew from shore brought us out another boat and away we go the rest of the tour was great and so was Capt Ron would go back again and request capt Ron. Very happy!!!!!!

Booked a small boat. 550 hp boat's engine is fast and very loud, be prepared. It fits 6-8 adults and you don't need rain coats and etc.. You need to arrive 15 minutes before your ride. Swamps are amazing. There are not so many gators in January, but we spotted a few small gators and one 5-7 ft long teenager gator 🙂 there are also a lot of other animals and birds. You will get some interesting facts from a guide and can prepare some questions about gators, wildlife, and LA national parks. Well done, highly recommend.

Great trip and awesome crew and guide. We were a little late and they waited, appreciated that. Little more than an hour the whole trip and you didn't feel time. We could see an alligator 10 feet long, turtles and birds. Also touched a little alligator the guide had with him. He also explains things about nature surrounding and tips. Amazing experience, very recommended.

Highly recommend! We did a small airboat tour and my boyfriend and I felt like we had a private tour sharing with just one other family. Top notch service, lots of laughs and excellent wildlife sightings! We chose to drive over ourselves and got there in plenty of time to check in, have a cold beer and safely meet some great people while enjoying the views from their dock!

This place is AWESOME! I have been on two tours now and had the same guide both times. Steve is great and I was actually hoping he would be my guide the second time around. He is very knowledgeable and knows the area and makes the tour exciting. Both tours I have been on we had tons of gator action! I highly recommend and will definitely be back! Be sure to check out the albino gator inside when you check in!

My wife and I wanted to take our 11 year-old son on a bayou tour while visiting NOLA. I stumbled across Airboat Adventures while searching for the best tour. We were very pleased with our choice. It was such an amazing experience for all of us. Ask for Jay when you go. He really knows his stuff and will make your tour a memorable one.

Airboat Adventures one of the top 10 things I’ve done in my life. Me and my gf had a blast. We spent up a little bit for the 6 person boat because we figured we could see some more that way! We went to some awesome areas of the bayou and swamp. Saw at least 15-20 gators. One of them at least 12 ft 13ft long and came right up to say hello. We ran into raccoons and Egrets and Herons and we even saw a Bald Eagle! The boat ride was exhilarating and brought tears of joy to our eyes. Our group was great and our guide was an authentic bayou gentleman that had us cracking up the whole time. My advice? Keep doing what you’re doing, cause it’s awesome! I would recommend to anyone.
