Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Mississippi River, LA

Travel along the river to reach your destination in the swamps.

Stop At: Barataria Preserve, Marrero, LA

On this tour you will experience the best of both: a swamp tour and an airboat ride.You will travel at high speeds in the airboat then slow down and stop for pictures. Along the way, you will get a personal tour by your local Captain. These airboats have stadium seating, so that the person in front of you does not obstruct your view. Every airboat seat is great for experiencing the tour and viewing the wildlife. Yes, gators will get close, real close. So close that you will be able to look into those reptilian eyes.

Alligators do hibernate in the colder months, but the experienced captains know where to look for them. On average, during the winter, you have better than a 50/50 chance of seeing a gator. In the warmer months, you will always see a gator. Every New Orleans Airboat Tour is unique and you never know what will be around the next corner. The area toured is a combination of Swamp, Marsh and Lake. So you may see anything from a Bald Eagle to a Pelican to Osprey our even an Owl, its that diverse. The airboats are driven by a 454 Chevy Engine that will produce speeds of up to 35 miles an hour. They are propelled by a huge fan that will blow air from the back of the boat in excess of 200 miles an hour. These tours are truly a blast! They ride in inches of water and go places where traditional boats cannot go. The boats were designed to take you to inaccessible areas of the swamp, places that you cannot reach by foot or car. It is a unique experience.

So much fun! Absolutely recommend this tour. Our tour guide was billy bop and he was both informative and very entertaining. We saw about 6 gators. Even a 12 footer!

The guide was really knowledgeable and we had a great time!! Can't believe how the guide was able to touch and feed the alligators with ease and made them look like little puppies.

The Airboat tour was a blast! We did get to see a few gators and we had a great time. Chaz was an awesome guide!

We booked our small group swamp tour before we flew down and we had a great time. everything was as described and our guide was a blast! We were picked up at our hotel and brought back at the end of the tour.
Highly recommend going with this company and getting an experience like no other!!
