What You Can Expect
In Jean Lafitte, you can get some snacks (own expense) and check out an albino alligator exhibit before boarding your choice of a small or large airboat, a vessel that relies on an aircraft-type propeller mounted on its back to move it forward. Feel the wind in your hair as your move swiflty over the wetlands.
Your native boat captain will talk about the history and culture of the area and point out wildlife as you travel. See lots of alligators lurking in the marshes, as well as local birds, raccoons and nutria -- giant river rodents that call the bayous home.
Conclude your 4-hour family-friendly escape to the Louisiana wetlands with coach transport back to central New Orleans.
Most fun tour my husband and I did while visiting NOLA! Highly recommended! Remember your sunblock!
Absolutey brilliant!! Our guide took us to a quiet spot where he feed and interacted with two gators and we got to play with the baby ones he had onboard. The airboat ride is a thrill and transport from the French Quarter and back is convenient and comfortable. Highly recommend!!
