Three Things to Bring When You Take a Swamp Tour

October 22, 2013

New Orleans is a wonderful place to visit, whether you live across the country or just across the Mississippi. Visitors enjoy numerous benefits, including experiencing a unique culture, tasty food, and the opportunity to see wildlife found only in this region of the United States. If you are planning a trip to the area soon, you should consider taking a swamp tour from Airboat Adventures. Appropriately named, these adventure tours allow you to see the swamp up close and personal in an airboat and make memories you will never forget. Make the most of your adventure and remember these three things when you take a tour: a jacket, a camera, and your questions!

A Jacket

This item is optional and might only be used if you take a tour in the winter or early spring. Temperatures in New Orleans during these seasons average 65 degrees, but can dip as low as 30 degrees. You might experience a slight chill during your ride if you take an early-morning or evening tour. You will be prepared for any weather if you bring a light jacket, and this preparation will allow you to fully enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime experience!

A Camera

Photographs are one of the best ways to remember your travels. Whether it’s a professional camera or a disposable one-time-use camera, you will want to bring one to capture every minute of the tour. Louisiana weather can be temperamental, and your tour guide is not responsible for lost or damage items, so keep this in mind when you are packing. You can expect to see exotic insects, alligators, snakes, turtles, herons, and other wildlife during the boat ride. Bring your photos home to show your family and friends when you tell them about your experience in the swamp.


Thousands of tourists visit the New Orleans area every year. When you travel someplace new, you most likely will have questions about the area: where to eat, what to see, what to avoid, etc. Airboat Adventures is the perfect place to ask your questions about nature life in and near the swamp. Tour guides are Louisiana natives and are knowledgeable about hunting and fishing. The unique environment offers a lot to locals and visitors. Bring your questions about the swamp to your tour and ask an expert guide when the time is right! A swamp tour can be an educational experience in addition to the perfect opportunity to spend time with family and friends.
