The airboat swamp tour was amazing, a highlight of our trip to the Bayou. The tour was well organized and directions were easy to follow since we drove ourselves. Our tour guide, Lance, was great and a little or lot of crazy! He jumped out of the boat to catch a baby alligator. He also had fun playing with a few bigger gators! Some got a little too close for comfort but that was part of the fun. Lots of gators to see and other wildlife amongst an Eerie yet beautiful swamp. Be sure to wear the headset as the boat can get really loud especially sitting in the back by the fan. Excellent tour!
Great trip! The weather was against us but Jay kept us entertained and we did see 6 gators. We had a fun time and learned a lot from Jay. Would definitely recommend it!
The Swamp Airboat Tour was really Great! Our driver - Captain Bobby really loved his job and it showed by his excitement and knowledge of the wildlife and the area. Even the slight misting/rain did not ruin this trip. It just added to the adventure of the swamp land.
this was so cool...just minutes from the French Quarter and a completely different world...natural beauty, wildlife, and real Cajun guides...fabulous!
We had a great time. Tour guides/boat operators were very knowledgeable about local history and animal life. I would highly recommend Airboat Adventures. If you are going to see the alligators, do your research, they go into hibernation when the water temperaturedrops below 60! We knew this ahead of time, so we enjoyed the local scenery and the boat ride...and of course our humorous tour guide.
Loved to see the alligators and the scenery. The guide knew what he was talking about, and was informative Overall a great adventure.
Although a tad bit chilly on the boat, it was fun!!!! The scenery was gorgeous and our tour guide was awesome. He was friendly and very knowledgeable regarding the area, the wildlife, the waterways and the plants/trees. We even got to hold a baby alligator...oh so cool. Would absolutely recommend this trip!!!!
Fabulous.. a must do! Staff at the site were knowledgeable and friendly.
One negative--- The driver of our shuttle was delayed so we were asked to take an alternate shuttle back into New Orleans, so don't know the drivers name. Big Jo on shuttle #1 was the best, humor, knowledge etc. The driver on the return was reckless and was reading documents while he was driving on the freeway. NOT impressed!
Ticked all the boxes for a great day out our guide and boat driver was fantastic.
Loved the swamp tour! The guide was informative and funny. Got to see many gators, herons, turtles, and even a stunning barn owl. Highly recommended.
This tour was great!! I would highly recommend this tour. My family took the large airboat and our driver/guide was very informative and funny. You could tell he cared about the land and wanted us to care also. Next time I want to try the small airboat ride!
