T Earl is the man the myth and the legend. If you haven’t been on an airboat with this man, you have not lived. Best tour guide I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. He is very knowledgeable and has great passion for the bayou.
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!!!!!!
We went on the coldest possible day and our boat captain Steve was so kind in making sure we all didnt freeze to death. We were so impressed with his knowledge and expertise of the area. We felt we truly had a personal tour with Steve. Great job
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.
We had a great time on our Airboat Adventure. Our guide, Ronnie was informative and great fun. He shared his personal experiences about the swamp as he lead us through the trip. Enjoyed every minute. Thanks for the fun!
Amazing experience! Got up close and personal with several gators specifically one that was over 15 feet long and over 70 years old. Very cool. Definitely recommend
This is the second time that I have booked the Airboat Adventures Airboat Tour and it was just as great (if not better) than the first experience. Kudos to Captain Jay for his personal touch, fantastic boat operating skills, and great restaurant recommendation!! He is quite the Alligator whisperer! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for the perfect Louisiana Swamp experience.
So much fun! Highly recommend doing this if you’re in New Orleans. I reserved a smaller boat with 6 passengers and it was totally worth it. Ian was our capital and he was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We saw crocodiles right away and he drove us all through the beautiful bayou. Don’t miss out!! There is ample parking if you drive yourself and get there 30 mins early to check in. Wear lots of sunscreen too. If you bring a hat, make sure it’s one that ties around your head because it will blow off! We will return!!
One of the best things we did on our trip to New Orleans! Outside the city but SO worth it! Loved our Captain, the boat ride, and all the local wildlife we were able to see! It was amazing!
Came to New Orleans with friends for a long weekend & this was our favorite part of the trip. The 35 minute van ride to & from the French Quarter to "the swamp" was worth the $40. The boat ride itself was beautiful & so fun. We saw countless gators, herons, cute racoons, turtles & a bald eagle!! Our guide was so funny & informative. You need to do this tour if you are near New Orleans!!
Ronnie was a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. He certainly is the "real deal"! An adventure like this has been on my husband's bucket list for a long while and he was very impressed!
The staff was all so kind and accommodating, the deck is beautiful to sit for a drink before the boat. The tour guide was well informed and we saw lots of gators, and got to hold a baby alligator. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting New Orleans!
SO MUCH FUN. Learned a lot and really got to see the swamp. Been on tours with Airboat Adventures multiple times.
Had a blast on the boat. Guide was awesome. Who Dat!!
Great trip! Saw lots of alligators including a 12 foot, 90 year old gator.
Very well informed through the waters even went to the princess Tiana recording strip
Great trip, Capt. Tiktoc was great
Fantastic time.. Had a good time upclose with alligators
Our guide T earl was amazing!! He was so full of information and really made sure to answer everyone’s questions. The gators were amazing and they came out within our first stop! I HIGHLY recommend this tour sight!
These guys are fantastic!!! Steve was our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area. :). We were thrilled with our experience! Lots of wildlife & beautiful scenery. It is well priced for the experience. We added the shuttle there & back which helped for a smooth & easy trip. We were happy we added the shuttle they offered. Very reasonably priced also. All around excellent adventure! Several alligators which we were happy to see! Highly recommend these guys/gals!
So much fun! Definitely recommend if your in the area. We visited from the west coast and it was an experience 😀
The tour was so much fun! Captain Tick Tock was entertaining and knowledgeable. Definitely worth it! Great Experience
What can I even say......WOW!! Ronnie was the coolest/funniest guy ever. Loved the family history as well. I also cannot believe the number and size of the gators we saw. Everyone needs this adventure!!
First off, thank you to whoever answered my inquiry the night before our reservation that let me switch the time of our departure last minute! Our captain had an intimate knowledge of the area and personal relationships with the animals we encountered. He could drive the hell out of that boat and we had some fun on the water between stops. I cant recommend this tour and company enough. They far exceeded my lofty expectations. I would recommend the smaller boat for the tour!
