We had so much fun on our swamp tour! Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable! (I can’t remember his name) we only saw 1 baby alligator since we went in January and it was only 45 degrees, but the rest of the tour made up for it! Definitely the highlight of our New Orleans area trip!!
I did this tour with my wife and daughter and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes we saw a fair number of alligators (even though it was January), enough snakes and birds and turtles. And even the semi-pet raccoon and pig. We also experienced the beauty of the swamp. That was our favorite part. There was also our bus driver, Kimberly, and our “Captain “ John. Kimberly was gracious, patient and informative. She livened up the drive to and from the swamp. We had a group of teens and they weren’t all that quiet or polite. She was great with them. Captain John was a goof. He kept the tour entertaining through even what might have been the boring parts. Full of stories and even some real information, he was the perfect guide. I think we got to enjoy some particularly pretty locations because of him. And he clearly loves and cares about the swamp and everything in it.
Took the slower paced pontoon boat tour. Had a great Cajun tour guide with a great sense of humor. This ride is a little more accommodating for cameras, relaxed viewing, taking in the scenery, and you can walk around the boat.
Super cool. Make sure you bring sun glasses to protect your eyes from the wind. Take the small airboat tour. It's by far the best. The smaller boats can take you into tighter/smaller areas. A big shout out to "Fluffy" the gator.
A large but pretty efficient operation. We had a great and knowledgeable guide and had a lot of fun on the airboat. Even though it was a cold (60 degree) and rainy day in December, we still managed to see a good number of birds and even an alligator in the swamp (they also have an albino gator in the welcomed me area)
This place was amazing. The tour was fantastic, and the tour guide was very knowledgable about the area as well. He was very polite and funny and made the experience worthwhile. I highly recommend this attraction to anyone visiting New Orleans looking for a tour of the swamps.
Great location and great staff. Shuttle picked us up right at hotel and dropped us back off. Saw a lot of the area and the captain was very knowledgeable of the area and answered all of our questions.
Worth every penny. My girlfriend an I went on a boat with a great guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable and showed us a great time.
Airboat Adventures was a wonderful experience. The swamp tour was fun and Captain T Earl was amazing. We saw a gator, turtle, and other animals. Definitely a great experience, would like to go back again.
Awesome tour out on the water. We actually got to see a few gators which is not guaranteed. We had a blast! Took the large boat and were kind of glad we did. They all took the same routes. It’s all about the captain! Captain Dillon was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. I Highly recommend if you’re in NOLA you check this place out!
CAPTAIN LARRRY!!!!! what can I say????!!! my buddy and I had a blast! You can tell he knows what he's doing and talking about . When it's a upcoming long a boring stretch he'll speed it up a bit and wake up the senses. He had a great eye for Spotting the elusive gators prior to the season ending. He had a wealth of knowledge about the animals and the surroundings . I just wish my family was with me because they would've had a blast. Awesome personality the captain had. I will be coming back with my family because it will be such an adventure .
Our swamp tour was way more fun than I thought it would be! We opted for the smallest boat, hoping for a more intimate tour, and we got it. Our tour guide was hilarious, knowledgeable, fun, and friendly. The boat a fast and very exciting! I'd recommend this tour to anyone looking for some fun in the swamp. We'll definitely be back the next time we visit New Orleans!
A place that we can’t recommend enough. What an absolute blast! The scenery is beautiful and the wildlife astonishing. We loved it and want to go back! How fun, too, to hold a baby alligator on the boat. The big alligators ate marshmallows and swam right next to our boat. Loved our experience here! Our photos at the end also turned out great!
Absolutely Amazing. We did the large fan boat tour. Everyone in our group said it was the highlight of our trip to NOLA. Our tour guide was a world championship gator wrestler with good humor and just the right amount of factoids. We really enjoyed him. Add the pick-up in the city, so easy and convenient.
We went to this Airboat Swamp Tour when we went to New Orleans for a girls trip. We were excited about this adventure, but took a while to decide on which tour to take. We needed up doing the $50 (30 people on a boat) tour. We had a great time! Our captain was great! Super informative and knew his stuff. We even got to pet and hold a baby alligator. Would definetly recommend this and do it again.
If you have the opportunity to venture into the Bayou I would highly recommend this company. I would also suggest taking the airboat for six persons. If possible Steve Adams is an excellent guide. He knows the Bayou, is very personable and funny. He went out of his way to give the full Bayou experience and made sure we saw 🐊.
This was such a great experience for my brother and me. We visited from California and this was definitely a great way to start off our trip. I’ve done a few airboat rides before and this was easily the best one yet. Shout out to our guide Dylan who was incredibly knowledgeable and had everyone laughing. Highly recommend!
My husband and I did the morning pontoon boat tour. Our guide was awesome! Knowledgeable, friendly, organized, just an all around pleasant guy. I was surprised we actually only saw one gator, but that’s not something that I can complain about obviously because these are wild animals and we don’t control them! I was just happy to get to see one. The swamp was so beautiful, and I loved learning about the history of the area. I’d like to try an airboat on our next trip although I did enjoy how quiet the pontoon was.
Absolutely a great experience here! Our guide was funny and knowledgeable about the history of the swamp and animals. We saw a lot of gators and birds! He even fed a gator a marshmallow and stuck his hand in his mouth! Truly a great experience with a great guide on this air boat tour!
We did the pontoon swamp tour. Fun & informative. We enjoyed our guide & his friend fluffy 🐊. Highly recommend. We booked right on Decatur st. In the French quarter with grey line. Big comfy bus & very nice driver. Great experience .
Hands down my favorite tour in New Orleans! I’ve done 3 different tours with 3 different companies and this one is my favorite. Every time I have a friend come to town to visit I make sure to take them here. This most recent time we had the pleasure of having Dylan (maybe Derek? Im bad with names) as our boat captain and he was fun, educational, and hilarious. 10/10 would recommend
I took my family of 9, ages 11-71, to this today. It was so much fun, everyone really enjoyed it. Our captain was Larry. He was very knowledgeable, personable and had a great sense of humor. This tour was less $$ than most and was well worth what we paid. We saw more alligators on this tour than on the one my husband and I went on in the Everglades.
Jay was our guide on the small boat and he was absolutely amazing. So much education and experience as well as respect and love for the environment/animals he works with everyday. I have been on tours in Florida, however, this experience was so much more than I ever expected and worth every dollar/minute.
I can say the Airboat tour was the highlight of my trip to New Orleans. Everything went perfect on the tour except the engine sound was too loud, but headphones are available. We saw so many alligators and so many beautiful scenes. You might get lucky and see beautiful birds including hawks. I loved the tour and truly enjoyed my day. Thanks Airboat Adventure.
Great experience at Airboat Adventures! Our tour guide was funny and experienced. He also had a baby alligator on board that everybody got to hold and take pictures with. She was so precious. I forgot our tour guides name but he had a giant scar from his shoulder to his neck because he's crazy... crazy in love with gators
Captain Anson(I think) was amazing. My kids were wowed and overjoyed during the entire trip. He is hilarious and very sweet. He even looks out for his passengers and is not shy about warning them to be safe. I will definitely go again.
While my cousin was in town, my family and I took her here. Everyone loved it! The tour guide was kind and we were able to look at the water from a beautiful deck while we waited a short amount of time for our boat to arrive. Additionally, they have an awesome shop and an albino alligator inside the building. Overall, the ride was lots of fun and my family and I learned a lot! I would definitely recommend this for any family that lives in any place. Though, this place is enjoyable for tourists, it is also very fun for families that live in the area.
Great experience! Highly recommend! I booked our tour of 14 people with Gina. She was very knowledgeable & helpful & stayed in communication with me. They send emails, call, & text to remind you of pick up times. It was very hot today & our guide was not hopeful that we would see many gators, but we saw at least 7-10! Also were able to see an array of birds, turtles, & fish. Our guide even surprised us by letting us hold a baby gator! He also fed & even grabbed one of the wild ones! The gift shop was very reasonably priced! If you're looking to go fast, book a smaller boat. The large, 30 person boat was still a good time though!
Jay was our tour guide and he was AWESOME! He was full of information about the areas wildlife! My favorite adventure of the trip by far. Saw a bunch of Gator's and the tricks that Jay did were amazing! Would definitely recommend and WILL come back!
Absolutely gorgeous! Captain Earl was hilarious and informative. He shared lots of info about the history of the area as well as the local wildlife. Its obvious he truly cares about preserving the local swamplands. Would definitely recommend. We got to hold a baby alligator and see a mama gator protecting her nest. Would definitely recommend.
