What You Can Expect

Small-Group Bayou Airboat Ride with Transport from New Orleans

Airboat in the Louisiana Bayous

After pickup from your downtown New Orleans or French Quarter hotel, you’ll drive to a remote swamp in Cajun Country, located less than an hour away, for an exciting high-speed airboat tour. On the way, your friendly driver will provide entertaining stories and interesting facts about the region.

Board a small airboat and relax as your professional driver takes you comfortably through marshes and deep into secluded bayous. On your 2-hour airboat ride, hold on tight as the airboat reaches speeds of up to 45 mph (72 kph)!

See abundant cypress trees, Louisiana’s state tree, and watch for native wildlife. If you're lucky, depending on the season, you may get to hold a baby alligator, feed a giant catfish or meet a nutria, similar to a beaver, face to face!

After your airboat tour, you’ll return to your hotel.

The small boat is so personalized. The tour guide is a third generation bayou alligator tour guide, who has been helping out since he was 10. He has relationships with the animals who come to see him and us. Fantastic. Incredible. Totally worth it.
